Re. paragraph 1.2.6, I want to highlight that the M1 J13 model includes impact assessments and mitigation studies for only the strategic network (i.e. M1 J13, A421) and does not quantify the impact on the downstream junction of Bedford Road/Salford Road near to the J13 north dumbbell roundabout which EXAM 114C clearly states is a bottleneck requiring additional mitigation. Therefore, the model provides only a partial understanding of the junction operation.
Why is there no proposal for an additional mitigation study for the aforementioned bottleneck? This would seem to be critical to potential achievement of the planned developments around J13.
