January - March 2015

Midland Expressway Ltd (MEL) today reported the average daily traffic figures for the quarter January - March 2015.

Category Jan-Mar 2015 Jan-Mar 2014 change vs pcp
Workdays 48,034 43,934 9.33%
Weekends/Public Hols 28,889 26,420 9.35%
All Days 42,290 38,680 9.33%


Traffic by its very nature is seasonal and remains unpredictable in view of the continued construction works on the competing M6 and with the underlying growing confidence in the economic climate. 

We are pleased to see continued growth in all categories underlying the continued confidence that our customers place in our service rather than utilising the unpredictable conditions still being experienced on the M6 which will continue throughout 2015 and 2016.

Traffic grew over 9.33% on pcp across all days with strong performance again at weekends with traffic up 9.35% on pcp.

We remain pleased to continue to provide a premier world class service to all customers who choose to use our service and we continue to expect to capitalise on the those seeking to avoid the unreliable M6.
