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.
This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
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.
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.
Closure and Diversion dates are now on the Highways Agency website.
Southbound tarmac paving works almost complete, with level connections to existing carriageways still to made.
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.
Scheme has been fully completed for some time and has removed the major bottleneck once caused here.
