Average daily traffic on the M6toll continues to be impacted by the continuing weakness in the UK economoy which has seen a greater decline in discretionary (weekend) travel.

In the September quarter of this year, the Highways Agency started preparing for the installation of Active Traffic Management on the M6 between Junctions 4 and 5. 50mph speed limits are due to be imposed during October 2008. The works at this section are expected to be completed by October 2009.
