Work to upgrade a 20-mile stretch of the M6 in Cheshire to a smart motorway will start later this month.  

Work will start on 26 February on the first section of the scheme – an eight-mile stretch between Knutsford and Middlewich near junction 18. Work will continue in similar phases to minimise disruption.

Narrow lanes and a temporary 50mph speed limit will be installed. Some lane closures will be in place while these are installed but once in place, the narrow lanes will allow three lanes to be kept open in each direction.
