Improvement works to Lofthouse Interchange, the junction of the M1 and M62 in West Yorkshire. In its present form, free-flowing sliproads exist between the north and west, and left-turns in three other directions are segregated from the main roundabout, but three remaining right-turn movements pass around the signal-controlled roundabout. The junction is a cause of significant congestion and a limiting factor on the capacity of the motorway network in West Yorkshire.
At the present time Highways England are developing options for improvement work and no designs have emerged. It's not yet clear whether incremental improvements will be made or whether a more drastic reconstruction of the interchange will be considered.
