    Bolton Travel Problem

    Post by DavesaRam on Fri 28 Sep 2018, 8:50 pm

    The A50 has been closed all weekend at Uttoxeter, so if you were going to go that way to the M6, you will need to find a way round it.

    Travelling from Derby there are a few options. Here are those I have thought of:

    1) Try and pick your way through Uttoxeter and head through to Stafford on the A518, then go right on the A34 to get to the M6. This depends on exactly where the road is closed. The closure is to allow the demolition of a bridge near the JCB factory o the Western side of Uttoxeter. Could eb a bit of a risk going that way.

    2) Go via Ashbourne to Leek, then head for Stoke and pick up the M6 from there

    3) Go the long way round up the M1, across the M62 and pick up the signs for Bolton.

    4) See what Google Maps or Apple Maps tell you and follow that! They do take into account the latest traffic news, so should allow for the situation.

    Any other suggestions would be helpful.

    Happy driving, see you there!

    That's the reverse of the route I travel to Derby. It can take about two hours to get to Stockport depending on traffic. Poynton and Hazel Grove can be very slow to negotiate. Join the M60 at Stockport and it's about 30 mins to Bolton.

    Watch out for speed cameras between Ashbourne and Leek.
