April 2004

M6toll releases traffic figures for April 2004.

Tom Fanning, Managing Director of Midland Expressway Limited today said, "Traffic on the M6toll for April continued its steady upward trend increasing by 12.8% over the average daily traffic for the previous month. It is pleasing to note that since January 2004 traffic has increased by 45%. 

April was a significant month for the M6toll: we welcomed our five millionth customer, averaged 45,000 vehicles on our road each day and recorded our highest day of traffic yet on Easter Thursday of 57,935 vehicles. 

As we have said previously, it is still too early to draw any conclusions from driving patterns but the trend indicates continued strong growth. There is no doubt that drivers are enjoying the benefits of free flowing, stress free travel on the M6toll and coming back for more"
