The four-mile stretch of the M56 around Manchester Airport - between junction 6 at Hale and junction 8 at Bowdon - will be undergoing the second phase of a large Smart Motorway project from next month. National Highways were working to complete the project by spring 2022 but stopped vehicle detection (SVD) technology will now be added to the road before the new lanes can open due to promises it has made to the Government and Transport Select Committee. The £85 million project will convert the hard shoulders to add an extra lane to both carriageways. Read more of the top stories from across Cheshire here. National Highways M56 motorway upgrade project manager, Clare Bond, said: “Good progress is being made on this upgrade and we are committed to implementing the recommendations of the Government stocktake before the scheme opens fully. "This means it will include stopped vehicle detection technology. “We’re grateful for everyone’s patience while we complete this work, and we expect the upgrade to be fully open next autumn.” The work taking place next month will involve installing traffic management to allow the conversion of the westbound hard shoulder to begin. To start the second phase of the project there will be three successive overnight closures of the eastbound carriageway between junction 7 and junction 5 from Monday (October 4). There will also be overnight closures of the westbound carriageway from junction 5 to 7 for the 'most' of October, beginning from Thursday (October 7), but junction 5 for Manchester Airport will remain open. The four-mile section of motorway between junction 6 at Hale and junction 8 at Bowdon is one of the busiest in the north west, carrying 100,000 vehicles a day.

This section of the M56 is part of the corridor between Manchester and Manchester Airport and the Midlands. National Highways hope that the extra running lane on each carriageway will tackle congestion and provide more reliable journeys for city centre commuters, businesses as well as tourists and workers using the airport. Once the westbound hard shoulder has been converted into a running lane, a third project phase will see the construction of a concrete central reservation barrier. A diversion using the M60, M62 and M6 will be in place for drivers heading westbound beyond junction 5. Read More
