M62 junctions 27 and 28 improvement schemeRecently updated

Improving the junctions at junction 27 and junction 28 of the M62 to increase safety and reduce congestion.

Region:  North East
Start date:  Summer 2018
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Improvement Scheme
End date:  Spring 2019
Programme:  

Progress report

These two projects are part of the Highways England Minor Safety Improvements Programme and aim to address issues identified at junction 27 Gildersome and junction 28 Tingley of the M62.

Highways England, working in conjunction with Leeds City Council, has been working to develop these proposals which aim to improve safety and reduce congestion. The works are funded by Highways England and will be procured, supervised and delivered by Leeds City Council.

What's next?

Works are due to commence on site in Summer 2018, starting at junction 27 Gildersome, with junction 28 Tingley starting a few weeks later.

Why we need this scheme

Users of the two junctions on the M62 experience significant delays, particularly during peak hours, which can result in unreliable journey times. Additionally, proposals are targeted at improving safety for road users at both junctions.

Over the past five years, junction 27 has experienced one serious and 70 minor road traffic accidents. Junction 28 has experienced one fatal, five serious and 43 minor road traffic accidents.

Aims

The improvements aim to:

  • reduce congestion by increasing road capacity
  • improve safety on our roads
  • improve traffic flows and resilience so that journeys are as reliable as possible

The scheme in detail

The works to be carried out include alterations to the existing junction layouts, providing additional lanes to the exit slip roads westbound at junction 27 (M62 and M621 exit slip roads) and junction 28 (M62 westbound exit slip road) as well as widening of the roundabouts. New road signs and markings will be installed and existing signals will be replaced and the area resurfaced.

Traffic management will need to be installed to ensure safety of the workforce and public and the speed limit on the slip roads will be reduced to 50mph.

At junction 27, there will be deep excavations which require room for the construction plant and workforce to operate. A safe clearance zone is then required to install the temporary barrier. This will mean there will be one lane running 24 hours a day until Autumn 2018. Once these works have been completed, the carriageway will return to two lanes for the remainder of the scheme. However traffic management will still be in place and the 50mph temporary speed limit will remain until the scheme is complete.

We are finalising the design for Junction 28 and more details on the traffic management will be shared here.

Partial closures will be required to complete the roundabout resurfacing works at both junctions. Full junction closures will also be needed at certain times however these will be scheduled at night time to avoid major disruption.
