M62 upgrade video released

A video of a controversial roadworks scheme on the M62 will be released today.

The Highways Agency are publishing the film on YouTube in response to comments and questions from the public about the £150m scheme, between junction 25 (Brighouse) and 30 (Rothwell).

The project is to install a "managed motorway" scheme turning the hard shoulder into an extra lane to manage traffic flow and reduce congestion with variable speed limits. But many motorists say they are causing undue disruption.

The scheme is currently at its half-way point.
