A £1.7m Highways Agency project to give drivers in Lancashire better information along the M6 will get underway this week.

Four of the latest electronic variable message signs (VMS) are to be installed around junction 33 of the motorway at Galgate – giving drivers better warnings of incidents and other information about the motorway such as weather conditions.

As part of the work, new CCTV cameras will be mounted on the signs – allowing Highways Agency traffic officers to monitor and manage motorway incidents more effectively.

The installation should be completed by Friday 14 March. Lane one of the carriageway in both directions is likely to be closed around the clock throughout the works.
