Traffic chaos

Reported via mobile in the Roadworks (NH) category anonymously at 00:58, Mon 12 September 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3818165.

You can NOT do this again every weekend this month. Shutting down the entire SB m6 us unconcionable. 10+ hours and a wholly inadequate LACK of on road warning and an abysmal ‘diversion’ incapable of handling the volume of traffic. PLEASE rethink your plans.

  • What imbeciles decided to shut the motorway down. These decision makers should be retrained on how not to cause absolute mayhem to the public who pay your damn wages by making incompetent decisions .

  • 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. This will result in the following: 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
