Thousands helped on M60 thanks to smart motorway

Thousands of drivers have been helped on the busy M60 motorway thanks to Greater Manchester?s smart motorway project, figures have revealed.
Thousands helped on M60 thanks to smart motorway

Since it launched, the project is thought to have helped up to 3,690 cars and other vehicles, including 297 lorries.

The project has so far received £208 million funding in order to provide a 24/7 recovery service with a 17-vehicle support team. A CCTV control centre has also been put in place, controlling 130 cameras. This has allowed teams to respond to breakdowns or accidents much quicker than was previously viable.

With over 180,000 vehicles using it per day, the M60 is one of the UK’s busiest highways, it was a perfect location to test out this new system of smart motorways, which is hoped to be implemented in other roads across the nation.

As well as the current features, more upgrades are still planned to be added. These include overhead electronic messages to warn drivers about upcoming delays as well as refuge areas for stretches of road that don't have a hard shoulder.

A 300-strong workforce is seeing to the upgrades, with work taking place mostly overnight to ensure that there are at least three lanes open.
