§ Mr. Watts
Work is at an early stage and options are still being identified. So far, we have commissioned work on traffic management and demand, and on possible minor improvements to the M62.
We are also developing transport models in partnership with the Greater Manchester authorities. These will enable us to assess behavioural responses and to test alternatives.
Evaluation will start when all the information has been gathered.
We shall consult the public, and others, when we have identified effective and affordable alternatives.
