The M6toll was built to move long-distance traffic off the heavily congested M6 through Birmingham and currently welcomes around 50,000 customers every day or 18.2 million users a year.

New prices coming into effect at 12am on Friday 12 July 2019 include three new pricing options for frequent users, following a successful trial over the past 12 months.

Hopper, Shuttle and Return Pass offer discounts to drivers who regularly use the road, with some customers saving over 35%.

Andy Cliffe, chief executive at Midland Expressway Limited (MEL), operator of the M6toll, said: “Since 2014 we’ve seen a 14% increase in trucks using our road — a recent industry study of HGVs shows that the M6toll is a safer road for travel than the M6 owing to a much lower accident rate and, with better fuel economy due to free-flowing traffic, HGV users also benefit from reduced fuel costs and emissions.”

Under the new arrangements, prices will rise between 20p and 50p for heavy goods vehicles and coaches depending on the time of travel. Full details can be found at www.m6toll.co.uk/pricing.

“We remain committed to increasing the volume of HGV traffic using the M6toll in preference to the M6 or local roads,” Mr Cliffe concluded, “and ensure that our incentives for new HGV customers and pricing deals for commercial operators are innovative and attractive.”
