M56 junctions 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:  2018-2019
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Major Scheme
End date:  2020-2021
Programme:  North West smart motorways

Progress report

We're continuing to have conversations with various stakeholders such as parish councils and businesses to take into account their views on this scheme which links north-east Cheshire into Manchester Airport and Manchester city centre. Some initial survey work is currently taking place within the verges and hard shoulder with no impact on the travelling public, all in preparation for construction work.

What's next

We anticipate construction will begin in early 2019 and will involve adding six miles of lanes to the motorway between the junctions. We'll be holding public information events on the following dates:

  • Friday 21 September (2-8pm) - Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel, Hale Road, Hale Barns, Altrincham, WA15 8XW
  • Saturday 22 September (10am-3pm) - St Peter’s Assembly Rooms, 136 Cecil Road, Hale, WA15 9NU

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 Highways England’s 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 motorways 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 scheme includes the conversion of the hard shoulder between junction 6 and 7 and westbound through junction 6 into a running lane.

The scheme will include the upgrade and the installation of sign and signal gantries, the construction of emergency areas and introduction of new concrete barriers.

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 (EAs) to provide an area of relative safety following a breakdown.
  • New emergency roadside telephones in each emergency area. These will connect you directly to Highways England’s 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. Surveys have been undertaken for bats, badger, dormouse, great crested newt, otter and water vole.
  • Understanding potential changes to air quality, particularly in relation to human receptors and within air quality management areas.
  • Minimising the loss of existing visual screening provided by vegetation where possible, and designing replacement planting to reinforce visual screening for the future.
  • Understanding whether existing noise barriers need to be upgraded to ensure their functionality remains and understanding potential noise and vibration changes and identifying measures needed to minimise disturbance to human and ecological receptors.

The findings show that it is considered unlikely there would be significant negative effects resulting from this scheme.
