Say NO to the M6 to M61 motorway link road

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Wigan Council have approved a new M6 to M61 link road to cut through Wigan, North Leigh, Atherton and Westhoughton which will at least triple the volume of traffic on surrounding roads.

A new junction is to be built at Atherleigh Way and Lovers Lane, Atherton which will be used by M6 traffic to cut through Atherton and Tyldesley to access the M60 at Worsley. Not only will there be more cars passing through but also many HGV's. The plan also includes the building of 12,000 new homes and commercial units in North Leigh.

Local roads are already heavily congested and this mad plan will bring traffic chaos, pollution, and road safety issues for residents. Say NO now and help stop this mad idea.
