Coronavirus – Update
Whilst these are unusual times to say the least, the M6toll remains open.
We are monitoring the situation very closely, and I would like to reassure everyone that the well-being of our customers and employees remains our top priority.
Keeping our customers and employees safe
We want to do everything possible to ensure the safety of our customers and employees, whilst continuing to deliver as efficient and smooth running a service as possible.
We continue to follow the UK Government’s advice, and in line with recent guidance have introduced a number of measures to support those who use and rely upon our service. This includes closing of restaurant areas in our motorway service area, more frequent cleaning programmes in all public and operational areas, splitting team shifts and rotas, restricting visitors to operationally critical sites and enabling remote working – all designed to increase the robustness of our 24-7 operation.
Staying in touch and keeping you up to date
As a vital part of the UK’s strategic road network, we work closely with Highways England, the Department for Transport and Central Motorway Police Group. We always publish any travel advice on our website, Facebook and Twitter pages, so please do follow those for the most Up-to-Date Information.
Pulling together to keep the Midlands Moving
I’m immensely proud of the commitment shown by the 150-strong M6toll team and that of our key supplier partners, as we pull together to ensure our exceptional standards of service and safety remain unaffected.
Wishing you good health, and safe driving.
Chief Executive Officer, Midland Expressway Limited
