Galgate closure

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 16:11, Sun 11 September 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3817505.

I’m a resident of Lancaster and this weekend traffic has been awful it took me 2 hours to travel 3 miles in none moving traffic caused by the weekend closure of the motorway. I believe this is going to have a detrimental impact on business in Lancaster and it also causes issues with emergency services and care services working in the community, we only have a 10 minute travelling time between clients and clients who are on time critical medication. I understand there can be a number of reasons that traffic can occur but to fine that this is going to be until the end of September really does affect peoples lives who are relying on ourselves as care workers to be there at certain times to give life saving medication.

  • Poor planning of closure

  • 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 10 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 this weekend (23 – 26 September) while we confirm the rest of the programme with our contractors. We plan to work overnight between the hours of 9pm and 6am under a full southbound closure or with single lane running. 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

    National Highways
