Hi The revised roadwork entry onto the M56 northbound at J6 (towards Manchester) is causing major issues. We have witnessed several near misses. There is very little run up when you enter the motorway and visibility is poor. Can this please be raised ASAP as we are very concerned there will be numerous crashes. Many thanks

  • I came on to report this issue at Jct 6 M56 towards Manchester, as described above, it is terrifying: zero visibility of the traffic on the Motorway off the bend and v little time to gain speed and filter into the lane.
