Is anyone here interested in geology? It is fascinating to observe the new cuts through the soils all the way along this section.

I hope so, it’s taken two years so far.

I’m so glad to be working from home now instead of commuting that route.

Been a while since I last ventured onto the M1, but from the occasions I have run on footbridges crossing it, as far as I can see J13-14 is basically complete, with 14-15 not far behind.

There's a nice long footpath at the top of a bank that runs basically alongside the motorway just south of J14 for half a mile, I'll try and run along it in daylight hours at some point to get a better idea of what is going on.

I passed this way late last year, round about November, and the "Progress Sign" stated it would be complete in 20 months. Like a lot of contractors, I suspect the very wet weather in autumn, plus Covid19 strictures have delayed the project. For instance the Congleton Link Road was originally expected to open Late-2020, but now shows Spring 2021.

That's summer 2022 - around the expected date of completion.

So it's not delayed, or the sign isn't being updated as well as the website !

Slightly OT but the Congleton Link Road has been delayed because of water table issues, I don't doubt covid hasn't helped, but they have done a lot of unplanned work.
