A lot of finds were uncovered during the archaeological evaluation carried out for the M62 Junction 6 Improvement scheme so we thought it would be nice to provide an interactive website so you can see what we found.
The National Traffic Control Centre collects real-time information on road conditions
The Highways Agency aims to make more people aware of the dangers of walking or crossing our motorway. We have launched a poster and radio campaign aimed at 16-25yr olds. Hopefully with our hard hitting posters, our message will come across.
Find out about the history of roads and the work the Agency does to preserve archaeological remains.
Our traffic forecaster can help get you there quicker
Publication and Assessment Scheme
The Department for Transport's (DfT) Publication Scheme for research projects is being implemented by the Highways Agency to fulfill its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Under this scheme, the Highways Agency will work to make its research available via the Knowledge Compendium. This applies to research completed after 30 November 2002. In addition, an assessment level will be provided by the Project Sponsor to evaluate the status of the results. Commercially sensitive or Information exempt under one of the FOI exemptions will not be published.
For projects falling under the scheme, a publications page will be accessible directly from the project record containing an Executive Summary, the assessment status, outputs attached in PDF and details of how to obtain copies of the full report if not available online. There may be a small charge for full reports to cover costs. If you don't have the software to view PDF format please download the Adobe reader.
The 6 defined assessment levels are listed below:
The research has not been assessed yet. Note that all research completed before 30 November 2002 does not fall under the scheme and will not be assessed.
The results are quality assured and peer reviewed to a level that they are not expected to be challenged. They will be a critical part of the evidence base to inform policy.
Addition to the evidence pool
The results are relevant to be used along with other evidence in the formulation of policy when they may be subjected to further critique and challenge.
The results have a level of uncertainty such that they are unlikely to be relevant to the formulation of policy.
Rejected or terminated
The results are of insufficient quality to be relevant to the formulation of policy or the project is not completed, either due to insufficient evidence to justify continuation or possible contractual intervention.
Please see the executive summary for further details on why this assessment level was chosen.
