The Bay Gateway Heysham M6 Link Road Gets An Opening Date
The new Bay Gateway M6 link road connecting Heysham Port directly to Junction 34 of the M6 will open on the 31st October 2016.
We recently reported on the HGV movement strategy consultation on the new link road. This has now been completed with the road development now in it's final stages.
The benefits provided by the new link road include
- Reduced travel time to and from the M6 to 10-15 minutes. Currently up to 1 hour!
- Improved access to Heysham Port
- Transformational changes including economic growth to Lancaster, Morecambe and the Heysham area
You can read more about the opening, comments from Lancashire County Council and planned events on the Heysham M6 link website.
The Bay Gateway is fantastic news for our Heysham ferry partners Seatruck, Stena Line & Isle of Man Steam Packet.
