National Highways confirmed: “The eastbound carriageway will also be closed on the M25 at J10 during this time with a diversion via the exit slip road, roundabout, and entry slip road, where road users will be able to rejoin the M25.”

The dates for the lane closures are:

June

From 9pm Saturday 8 – 5am Friday 21 June there will be an inside lane closure on the westbound carriageway between J19 and J20.

News In Brief

Report calls for more rail freight in Manchester to boost construction sector and cut carbon emissions

A new industry report calling for support from the Government and Network Rail has been released.

The Mineral Products Association (MPA) and the Rail Freight Group (RFG) want to encourage more use of rail rather than road to move materials such as aggregates and cement, used in construction.

Their new publication, Building Better with Rail Freight in Greater Manchester, says rail freight typically produces 76% less carbon dioxide than the equivalent road journeys, while a single aggregates train can carry as much as 125 lorries.

The MPA says its members supply around 200m tonnes of aggregates and 9m tonnes of cement each year to meet UK demand. But just 10% of those materials are transported by rail.

Measures suggested in the report include:

- Putting freight at the heart of future rail policy

- Commitment to a long-term programme of rail electrification to encourage private sector investment in electric rail freight

- Prioritising timetabled slots for freight - and optimising timetables to allow for longer freight trains

- Affordable track access charges

- Protecting freight land, railheads and depots for future use

- Safeguarding the operation of strategically important railheads and depots from new housing developments nearby, securing the land for future use

- Safeguarding rail-connected terminals and depots near city and town centres in future housing and regeneration plans, so building materials can still be delivered near to key construction sites.

Logistics UK's Senior Policy Manager, Alex Herdman said: “There is significant opportunity to increase rail freight across Great Britain, but the challenges to doing so are many and complex.

"Logistics UK has been calling for a rolling programme of electrification to support sustainable rail freight, as well as targeted infrastructure investments to create capacity to meet freight growth targets.

"The rail freight sector is clear and unified on these vital issues and government must act in order to meet both the rail freight growth target and net zero targets.”
