Traffic on the M6toll in the September quarter of 2006 was enhanced by major roadworks on the M6 at junctions 5-6 and 8-9 which commenced in June 2006 and were completed in December and September respectively. As a result, average daily traffic growth for the September quarter of 2007 was lower on a pcp basis compared to the September quarter of 2006, however traffic was 5.1% higher than the September quarter of 2005 (the last time there were no major roadworks on the M6 during the September quarter), and 3.3% higher for the 9 months to September 2007 than the comparable period in 2005.
