Drivers using the M6 motorway in the UK are in the unlucky situation of facing the worst congestion in the country. The latest official data reveals the M6 to suffer more congestion than any other route in the UK, taking over this unfavourable record from the M25 motorway running around London.
The M6 is the UK’s longest motorway and runs from Rugby to Gretna in Scotland. The data shows that drivers using the route will face delays to some 210 million journeys when the current three year period of roadworks is complete at the end of 2021.
By comparison, drivers using the M25 motorway will face delays to 86.2 million journeys in the same time period, with those using the M60 around Manchester facing 80.7 million delays and those using the M62-crossing the Pennines facing 71.7 million delays.
