Using Stantec’s international experience to create a new ‘world class’ tolling system for the M6toll road

The M6toll opened in 2003 as an alternative to the congested M6 and to improve connectivity between the north and south. Up to 18 million journeys are made on the M6toll annually, around 50,000 per day, rising to 60,000 at peak times.

Midland Expressway Limited (MEL), who operate the M6toll, want to build on this success, improving the experience to move vehicles away from the M6 and other adjacent roads allowing travellers and freight companies to realise the reliability and time savings offered by the M6toll.

To achieve this, they have begun an upgrade programme to improve the tolling system and introduce new digital systems, including Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR). The upgrade will lead to broader interactions with customers, and ultimately position the Midland Expressway for future developments in the tolling industry.

MEL appointed Stantec as their Design Services Partner to facilitate the full development and implementation of their roadside and systems architecture. The appointment was based on our international experience delivering some of the best constructed and most technically efficient tolling systems in the world.

The Stantec team undertook a review of the current tolling system and infrastructure and specified a programme of work that incorporates new roadside ANPR technology, as well as improvements to the operational and commercial back-office systems. Stantec will also assist MEL with the procurement of one or more Implementation Service Partners and provide project management services during the delivery of the new tolling system.
