M6 Toll Road Accident Planning

Posted by:AutoMoney

We all know about the M6 – two motorways, slightly different paths and one with a toll road.

However, now there is talk of allowing non-paying motorists the ability to use the toll road without charge, but only in extreme cases.

Only earlier this month, a bad incident saw the closure of the M6, leaving motorists stranded in the heart of the midlands for hours. However, over on the M6 toll road, motorists drove on, carefree and unaware of the accident causing havoc not far away.

Perhaps the interesting fact in this story is that the transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin was held up in this traffic on his way to a meeting in Birmingham. Calls have since started again for the emergency services, or the transport authority, to be given the power to be able to open the M6 toll to non-paying motorists in case of an accident or emergency that will see the closure of the M6 or lengthy delays.

After being held up in the traffic, McLoughlin has agreed to put his name behind the campaign along with the West Midlands Combined Authority, who have been in talks with the government recently.

We think this would be a great move for motorists - no one likes being stuck in traffic  and hopefully a resolution can be made and quickly on this issue!
