This article concerns the M6 motorway in England. There are also M6 motorways in Russia (see Caspian Highway), Hungary (see M6 motorway (Hungary)) and the Republic of Ireland (see N6 road).

The M6 motorway is the longest motorway in the United Kingdom. It runs from a junction with the M1 near Rugby in central England, passes between Coventry and Nuneaton, through Birmingham, Walsall and Stafford and near the major cities of Wolverhampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and Lancaster. After the latter two cities it passes through Cumbria and the Lake District. The motorway has a major junction onto the M56 and M62 at Warrington, and then finishes to the north of Carlisle, close to the Scottish border. Image File history File links Question_book-3. ...

M6 Toll

Main article: M6 Toll

The M6 Toll, Britain's first toll motorway, was partially opened (to local traffic only) on December 9, 2003 and fully opened a few days later. It bypasses the West Midlands conurbation to the east and north of Birmingham and Walsall, and was built to alleviate congestion through the West Midlands. Prior to the opening of the toll motorway, this section of the M6 carried 180,000 vehicles per day at its busiest point near Wolverhampton (between the junctions with the M54 and M5 motorways), compared with a design capacity of only 72,000 vehicles. The daytime price for a car to travel the full length of the M6 Toll increased from £3 to £3.50 on 14 June 2005 and again to £4 on 1 January 2007. It was increased further to £4.50 on 1 January 2008.

M6 Carlisle to Guards Mill Extension

In March 2006, after a 15-year saga,[2] the government finally gave the green light to construct a 6-mile (9.7 km) extension of the M6 from its present northern terminus near Carlisle to the Anglo-Scottish border at Gretna (the so-called "Cumberland Gap"), where it will link into the existing A74(M).[3] Construction work should be complete by December 2008.[4] The project, which will be a mixture of new road and upgrade of the existing A74, traverses the West Coast Main Line and has estimated costs of £174m. Once completed, it will provide an uninterrupted motorway from Glasgow in the north to Exeter in the south. For other uses, see Carlisle (disambiguation). ...

Proposed developments

Increased capacity between J11a and J19

The government wishes to improve reliability and capacity between Junctions 11 by Cannock) and Junction 19 near Knutsford.

Hard shoulder running (junction 4-5 and 8 to 10a)

In October 2007, following a successful trial on the M42 in the West Midlands, the UK government have announced that two stretches of the M6 will be upgraded to allow the hard shoulder to be used as a normal running lane during busy conditions[9]. The two stretches, between junctions 4 and 5 and between junctions 10a and 8, are two of the busiest sections on the entire motorway[citation needed]. The system could also be extended onto other stretches of the M6 as the government is going to undertake a feasibility study to determine other likely locations where this technology can be used.[citation needed] For other uses of the term M42, please see M42. ...
