Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus said: “England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads are at the heart of how many of us move around the country. It’s good to see the M5 and M40 perform well.

“As the so-called backbone of Britain, the M6 is a vital route which National Highways must continue to focus on delivering safe, smooth journeys.

"We’ll continue to keep pushing National Highways to improve these issues.”
