The June quarter of 2008 in the United Kingdom had two less non-workdays and two extra workdays compared to the June quarter of 2007 as a result of the timing of the Easter break in 2007 when compared with 2008.

A revised tolling structure became effective on 1 January 2008. The headline car toll at the mainline plaza was increased by 12.5% from £4.00 to £4.50.

As noted in the March 2008 quarter traffic release, traffic on the M6toll in the June quarter of 2007 was positively impacted by roadworks on the southbound lanes of the competing M6, near Junction 8, which were commenced in October 2006 and completed in early July 2007. The June 2008 quarter sees the end of the lapping growth rates associated with these roadworks.
