M56 junction 6 to 8 smart motorway

Improving the M56 motorway between junction 6 (Manchester Airport) and junction 8 (Bowdon) by making it a smart motorway.

Region:  North West
Start date:  2019-20
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2021-22
Programme:  North-west smart motorways

Progress report

In winter 2019 – based on feedback from our customers and stakeholders of their experiences on our network – we announced changes to our smart motorway programme across the north-west to reduce the impact of concurrent roadworks on our customers.

This means the M56 junction 6 to 8 scheme will begin 12 months later than originally planned.

In the meantime, we're continuing to talk to various stakeholders such as parish councils and businesses so that we take into account their views on this scheme which links north-east Cheshire with Manchester Airport and Manchester city centre.

What's next?

From spring 2020, construction will involve adding a total of eight miles of lanes to the motorway between the junctions and upgrading it to a smart motorway.

If you have any questions before or during construction you can get in touch by phone, email or post at the details provided under ‘contact us’.

This scheme is part of a wider programme of smart motorways investment across the north-west.

Why we need this scheme

This four-mile stretch of road, which is linked to several arterial trunk roads, is a vital part of the network for commuters travelling into Manchester city centre. This section of the M56 carries in excess of 100,000 vehicles per day.

This scheme is part of our programme to add capacity to the existing strategic road network in order to support economic growth and maintain mobility.

Aims

It is expected that this smart motorway scheme will:

  • increase motorway capacity and reduce congestion on this key route into Manchester
  • smooth traffic flows
  • provide more reliable journey times to Manchester Airport
  • increase and improve the quality of information for the driver, for example, through variable messaging signs (in relation to the operation of the motorway)

Scheme in detail

Smart motorways are a technology-driven approach to tackling the most congested parts of the motorway network, improving journey reliability by controlling the flow and speed of traffic. Smart motorways also support the economy by providing much-needed capacity on the busiest motorways, while maintaining safety for road users and those who work on the roads.

The existing M56 is a rural dual three-lane motorway with a hard shoulder, with the exception of sections on both carriageways near junction 7 where the hard shoulder has been converted into additional running lanes. This new scheme includes the conversion of the hard shoulder between junction 6 and 7 and westbound through junction 6 into a running lane.

The scheme involves:

  • converting the hard shoulder to create a new additional permanent traffic lane between junctions 6 and 8, increasing capacity to reduce congestion.
  • new electronic information signs and signals and CCTV cameras on overhead gantries. These will show variable mandatory speed limits and manage traffic flow and incidents.
  • installing remotely operated temporary traffic management signs along the entire route, which form a key safety feature of the works.
  • four new emergency areas to provide an area of relative safety following a breakdown.
  • new emergency roadside telephones in each emergency area. These will connect you directly to our Regional Control Centres and pinpoint your location.
  • replacing the central reservation with a new rigid concrete barrier between junctions 6 and 8 to help increase safety.
  • the provision of new low-noise surfacing on lanes 1 and 4 on both sides of the carriageway.

Environmental impact

Potential environmental impacts and measures to minimise them are investigated as part of this scheme.

The key issues considered include:

  • understanding the presence of protected species
  • understanding potential changes to air quality
  • minimising the loss of existing visual screening provided by vegetation
  • understanding potential changes to noise and vibration
  • identifying measures to minimise disturbance to human and ecological receptors

An environmental screening exercise indicates that it is unlikely there will be any significant negative effects resulting from this scheme.

However, as part of our works, we will:

  • introduce a new low noise surface on lanes 1 and 4
  • deliver the scheme through an ongoing approach to environmental management through a dedicated Outline Environmental Management Plan
