Widening of the southbound carriageway of the M6 to provide three full lanes through Junction 32, which has been a severe bottleneck for many years. The widening will not replace the existing structures, leaving an intermittent hard shoulder through the junction.
|23 November 2008||Advance works appear to have begun before the official start of work. Gantries approaching the junction have had modifications, with one being removed. New barriers have been installed for a new gantry installation.|
|20 January 2009||Preliminary barrier works are all complete, and information boards marking the official start of work as January 26th are in place. Overnight closures are scheduled for numerous weekends throughout February.|
|27 January 2009||Closure and Diversion dates are now on the Highways Agency website.|
|12 April 2009||Southbound tarmac paving works almost complete, with level connections to existing carriageways still to made.|
|1 June 2009||Three southbound lanes are now open, with hard shoulder works still taking place. There is now a 'tiger-tail' merge for traffic using the M55 entry sliproad.|
|10 June 2010||Scheme has been fully completed for some time and has removed the major bottleneck once caused here.|
