M60 Widening J15 to J12

Scheme outline

Widening of the anti-clockwise M60 carriageway between J15 (M61) and J12 (M62/M602).

This is a very congested part of the M60 and currently only has three lanes anti-clockwise as opposed to four clockwise lanes. It's not yet clear what will happen when the widened carriageway meets the traffic joining at J13 only a short distance before the double lane-drop for the M60/M62 interchange.

The scheme has been dropped and replaced with a Smart Motorway scheme extending over a larger area.

This scheme has been cancelled. We're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
