The operator of the M6 Toll has appointed a new general manager.

Michael Whelen has previously worked on innovative toll systems around the world and will work to implement Midland Expressway Ltd’s RoadAhead transformation project.

The programme will see the introduction of new technology to improve the experience for road users and boost numbers using the M6 link.

Michael said:

“I relish the opportunity to again be involved in successfully delivering a world-class tolling system, with tangible benefits for local drivers and long-distance customers, the West Midland region, and the wider national strategic road network.”

RoadAhead has already seen the use of ANPR cameras to allow contactless payments for account customers, with the M6 Toll hoping to see the system rolled out to all users in future.

Further plans include upgrading technology and developing an enhanced control room.

Michael added:

“At the M6 Toll, we are committed to creating more viable transportation alternatives and frictionless journeys for our customers as we continue to be the most reliable route through the Midlands.”
