M6 junction 16 to 19 smart motorway project newsletter

Home » News » M6 smart motorway

Highways England have issued a newsletter update on the project to upgrade M6 junction 16 (Crewe) to junction 19 (Knutsford) smart motorway project.

If you are wondering what's left to do, they say....
"From autumn into early 2019 we expect to complete resurfacing, finish installing gantries and verge works (drainage, vehicle barrier installation, cabling) and install all new signage. Much of this will be done overnight during full carriageway closures when the roads are quieter.

Andy Brown from the project team said:
'We appreciate that people using the diversion routes, and the residents that live on them, can become frustrated with the inconvenience. We're doing our best to ensure we complete as much as possible when closures are in place to avoid having to close it again.'

A smart motorway gets its name from the technology used to power it; from the electronic signage to the 24/7 CCTV coverage. Once construction is complete, we will be removing the current narrow lanes so we can test the newly- installed technology. During this process, all new cabling, signage and communications equipment will be checked so we're ready to open by spring 2019.

The scheme will be completed in phases starting with the northern section between junctions 18 and 19, with all of the roadworks due to be removed by spring 2019."
