M54 Junction 6 improvements completed


McPhillips have completed this Highways Agency project for the signalisation of the island at the M54 Junction 6 in Telford and widening of the exit slip roads. The original design called for night time working and full carriageway closures however we were able to undertake the works using single lane closures and therefore were able to work during the daytime and as a result provided the Highways Agency with a saving on this element of greater than 10% of the tender sum.  The exit slips were widened from two to three lanes and traffic signals were installed at the top of the slip roads and on the island. 2000m2 of existing carriageway was planed out and kerbs were realigned to widen the carriageway before resurfacing took place. 300m of traffic safety barrier was installed and 400m of new footpath was created around the island.   1000m2 of antiskid was provided on the signal approaches along with new road markings street lighting and fencing. Two bridge joints were also renewed as part of the works.
