The planned Highways England improvements between junctions one and seven of the M621 will provide additional capacity and improve journey times.

The options being explored include additional lanes at points along the route and more signage which will improve the information drivers receive.

The project is expected to cost around £55m and is due to start in 2020, subject to achieving all the necessary approvals.
