The first phase of work for this scheme is now complete. This includes road resurfacing and reinstatement of road markings from Esk Bridge to M6 junction 44 southbound and also junction 44 to Metal Bridge northbound. Almost 1,045 metres of new environmental fence panels have been installed so far.
Thank you to all those who attended our three drop-in sessions at the Premier Inn at junction 44 to find out more about our work.
Temporary speed limits remain in place - 50mph on the motorway and 30mph on the junction 44 roundabout - with diversions in place for upcoming road closures as part of phase two of the work.
Resurfacing and improvements to road markings at junction 44 will continue and more fencing will be replaced. We expect the full stretch between junctions 44 and 45 (northbound and southbound) will be fully operational at the end of August 2019.
