Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3817450.

This weekend’s roadworks are a disgrace on the M6 a better system needs to be put into place before the next weekend as there will be more accidents like I’ve seen today

  • The closure of junction 33 to 32 has basically caused Lancaster to a standstill, I have effectively closed my business because delivery drivers were unable to get to us and have refused to take out the delivery while the closures continue

  • Motorway completely blocked with miles of standing traffic but zero repairs taking place. Completely unnecessary, traffic southbound needs to be sent into contraflow onto the other side and repairs needs to be done quicker.

  • Thank you for contacting National Highways about the delays caused by our closure of the southbound carriageway of M6 motorway at junction 33 on the weekend of 11 September. We understand motorists were caught in traffic for a significant period of time and we’re sincerely sorry for this.

    We’ve taken onboard recent feedback and plan to do things differently. The new schedule of works will be carried out using lane closures for four weeks starting on Sunday October 2, which will ensure the motorway remains open during the daytime providing a safe environment for both workers and road users.

    During the daytime, we will establish lane closures and run two narrow lanes of traffic past the work area to keep customers moving, removing the need for the full weekend closures, which were previously planned. Once the programme has been finalised with our contractors, we will advertise full details via our website, a press release and social media.

    If you would like a more detailed response on this matter, please contact our 24hr Customer Contact Centre • Email – • Tel: 0300 123 5000

    Kind regards
