Highways England is currently reviewing the list of sites most severely affected by noise from traffic using trunk roads and motorways in England. This is being conducted on a fair and transparent basis using criteria agreed with Highways England’s stakeholders. The section of the M60 adjacent to Thompson Close is one of 2,500 locations being reviewed. Highways England will write to the Hon. Member once the review is complete and a decision has been made about provision of a noise barrier at this location.
