Birmingham M6 Congestion


Anyone who regularly drives on the M6 through J12 to J4 knows what a nightmare this can be. Those regulars will have noticed changes, use of the hard shoulder etc.  This project started in 2009 with the M42. In a 12 month study the following has been recorded by the government.
  • The number of accidents has decreased from an average of 5.1 a month to 1.8 a month;
  • Drivers ability to predict their weekday journey times has improved by up to 27%;
  • There has been a reduction in fuel consumption by 4%;
  • There has been a reduction in vehicle emissions by up to 10%;
  • 68% of people traveling felt more informed about conditions

All of this is great news in many aspects, firstly less accidents. Further advancements for the M6 will commence in April 2012.
