I use the M60 every weekday as it is the easiest and usually quickest route to and from work.
I'm also very fortunate to have the best flexi-time you can imagine and as such start early and leave early therefore mostly I don't stop.
Last night my missus was visiting her children whom half of them we left in Oldham. I had to collect her and bring her home via Costco.
Traffic on the M60 was bad an we got home late.
I do understand calming traffic helps keep it flowing and I think at either side of peak times it makes a minimal difference (in effect when I travel) but not £200m worth of difference.
My buddy who almost goes in the opposite direction and uses the M60 from Urmston said that we would all forget what it was like before the road works but when they finish we will think it's great because we no longer have signs saying "My mum and dad work here". I think that must have been because parents felt they were on the M60 more than working.
I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
