The new system has been tested close to Warrington reported the English Highways. This is in the early stages of a large £7 million trial which may be trailed throughout motorways around the UK.

The current way of thinking is to install lights at busy junctions which have slip roads onto the motorways in a bid to ease traffic.

Both junctions which are trailed are J10 of the M62 and also J21A of the M6.

Monitoring of the system will take around 12 months after which data will be gathered before any further announcements will be made.
