Traffic on the M6toll in the December quarter of 2006 was enhanced by major roadworks on the M6 at junctions 5-6, which commenced in June 2006 and were completed at the end of November 2006 as well as southbound carriageway R111 Scheme roadworks at M6 junction 8 (M5) throughout the reported quarter . As a result, average daily traffic growth for the December quarter of 2007 was lower on a pcp basis compared to the December quarter of 2006, however traffic was 0.1% higher than the December quarter of 2005 (the last time there were no major roadworks on the M6 during the reported quarter), and 2.5% higher for the 12 months to December 2007 than the comparable period in 2005.
