HGV Movement Strategy for Lancaster

New Search

Purpose The completion of the Heysham to M6 Link Road is one of the largest road construction projects currently managed by a local authority in England. At a cost of 128.62 million, it will directly connect the Heysham and Morecambe peninsula to a reconfigured Junction 34 of the M6.
The primary objectives of the Heysham to M6 Link are to:
- Improve communications between Heysham, Morecambe and the M6 motorway, including improving access to Heysham Port and surrounding areas
- Facilitate industrial and commercial regeneration and provide employment opportunities
- Remove a significant volume of traffic from River Lune bridges in Lancaster city centre, and
- Create opportunities for the enhancement of alternative travel modes by relieving the current traffic conditions
To enable these objectives to be realised a number of measures are to be introduced as part of the Development Consent Order. These measures are effectively intended to ensure that the benefits of the new link road are felt across the wider Lancaster area.

The key priority in relation to this strategy is
- The management of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) so as to make the most effective use the new link road
