January - March 2013

Midland Expressway Ltd (MEL) today reported the average daily traffic figures for the quarter January - March 2013

Category Jan-Mar 2013 Jan-Mar 2012 Change vs pcp
Workdays 39,859 35,396 12.6%
Weekends/Public Hols 22,182 18,618 19.1%
All Days 34,360 30,418 13.0%









Average daily traffic during the quarter was 13.0% above pcp mostly as a result of the positive impact of the roadworks on competing sections of the M6 which is continuing through 2013 as expected.  The works include the use of narrow lanes, reduced speed zones enforced by camera and occasional night time lane closures.
