M6 junction 19Recently updated

We will be making improvements to junction 19 of the M6

Region:  North West
Start date:  By end March 2020
Cost:  ¬£50 million
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  September 2021
Programme:  

Progress report

Since we consulted with the public on this scheme in 2016, and the subsequent announcement of a preferred route in June 2017 we have been further developing our plans.

We invited people along to two public information events during May 2018 where everyone could come along and find out more about the development of the scheme.

You can view a fly-through video of this scheme by visiting the 'videos' section below. You'll also find the exhibition panels that were used at the public information events in the 'documents' section.

What's next?

Later this year, we intend to publish draft orders that will enable us to start carrying out the improvements by spring 2020 at the latest.

Why we need this scheme

This busy junction is currently used by around 65,000 vehicles each day and is in need of improvement to meet the expected increase in traffic coming from the M6 and the A556. This increase is further exacerbated by the expansion of Manchester Airport (Airport City) and the development of the Wythenshawe MediPark.

M6 junction 19 improvements are part of a wider collection of schemes to improve connections between Cheshire and South Manchester, including the completed A556 between Knutsford and Bowdon, the improved B5569 and the M6 junction 16-19 smart motorway.

The government announced this scheme in December 2014 as part of the Road Investment Strategy.

Aims

The changes are vital for reducing congestion in the future, improving safety and journey time reliability for all road users and increasing connectivity between local areas. The plans will also improve access for walkers and cyclists.

The scheme in detail

We propose to:

  • add a two-way link across the junction to allow better connection between the M6 and A556, including a new bridge spanning the M6 motorway within the roundabout
  • renew traffic signals on the roundabout and its approach roads
  • add new traffic signals for the Tabley Hill Lane / Pickmere Lane junction
  • add new signs
  • improve local access for walkers and cyclists using the junction
