  • I agree w this. Insufficient length of slip road, very dangerous, pile-up accident waiting to happen

  • There is very short lay out on junction 6 on M56. I nearly had an accident yesterday, as soon as you go on the motorway the lay out just finished, you can see any thing if you have a traffic in front of you.

  • Very dangerous. Not enough distance to safely determine if vehicles are approaching on Lane 1 before slip road abruptly joins. No thought appears to have been given to this at all. Not SMART at all.

  • Very dangerous entry now it has been changed. Lorries we’re having to slow down and almost stop to allow cars on to the motorway this morning. As the run up isn’t long enough cars we’re having to come to a stand still and then try and get on to the motorway. This led to congestion on the slip road and on the motorway. This is very likely to cause an accident either on the slip road, or on the motorway itself.

To address this we have lengthened the eastbound junction 6 entry slip road to give more room to merge with the traffic. Kind regards, National Highways M56 junctions 6 to 8 scheme
