The M60 In Manchester is Going to Get a Major Upgrade

The M60 is a rather strange motorway, as you need to leave if you want to stay on it. This is currently the only motorway in the UK where you need to come off in order to continue the journey on the same motorway. The motorway could be about to get its missing link. Of course, anything that might remotely help with congestion might be a good thing. The anomaly was created when the M60 came about, which was over 20 years ago and it connected several motorways with a brand-new stretch of motorway. This then wormed a ring road which goes for 36-miles all around Manchester. The way the road is right now means that anyone who is travelling eastbound on the motorway, at junction 18 finds themselves on the M62 going to Leeds if they do not use the roundabout on the M60- southbound section. This is super annoying if you happen to work in the industry of driver recruitment Ireland or if you're a member of a driving agency Ireland. After all, if you are seeking driving jobs right now then you will also know that time is everything when you are on the road and that if you have to take a turn off then this can make your journey considerably longer.

Hard Shoulder Conversion

There are intentions to convert the hard shoulder lane so that it gives an extra driving lane. This would mean that there is five in each direction. The idea is that this would allow more traffic to pass through while also improving people's journeys and driving experience overall. Of course, only time will tell what the future holds but right now it looks like there are a lot of changes that need to be made and discussed.
