How long to Heysham ferry?


Recommended Posts

Trying to navigate the M6 between Birmingham and the East Lancs at any time other than the early hours of the morning is one of the most soul destroying things a person is ever likely to do.

You clearly have never had to listen to my wife tell you about her day at work.

Satnav thingies are ace. 

But most will probably not have the new spur from the M6 to Heysham so be sure to come off at M6 Junction 34.

Don't let her tell you whilst you're driving up the aforementioned stretch of the M6 at 5pm then.

Whatever estimate you come up with, add at least an hour contingency. The seemingly endless narrow lanes with 50 mph limit and no hard shoulder are incredibly vulnerable to long delay. Just one broken down vehicle, and the whole sorry mess grinds to a halt.  'Upgrading to a smart motorway' = pissing down our backs and telling us it's raining!

Agreed.

"Smart Motorway" is all very well but I view it as a complete and utter waste of time and money due to the lack of smart drivers....
