Traffic on the M6toll continued to be impacted by the weak UK economy and improved network capacity and has fallen 2.7% compared to pcp.  The rate of decline compares favourably to the 4.9% reduction in the June quarter.

Construction activity on the main alternative has started to positively impact traffic, especially at night during week-ends.

On 27 November 2008, the M6toll announced a new toll schedule which came into effect on 01 January 2009.
