M62 J10-12 Smart Motorway 13 December 2017
Work to upgrade the M62 between junctions 10 (Croft Interchange at the M6) and junction 12 (Eccles Interchange at the M60) to Smart Motorway standard. This will include the introduction of new technology, with Variable Speed Limits, new traffic sensors and CCTV. Refuge areas will also be installed at regular intervals by the side of the motorway.
It is not yet clear whether the Smart Motorway will be operated with All Lane Running, converting the hard shoulder to a permanent fourth running lane, though this seems likely.
