Weekly toll pass to boost motorists


More commuters and business travellers in the West Midlands will be able to use the M6toll motorway thanks to the introduction of a new weekly ‘Tag’ pass. The Hopper £35 Tag pass offers


commuters joining or leaving the motorway at junctions T4, T5 or T6 unlimited journeys for just £35 per week. The pass is designed to support local businesses and commuters, ensuring smoother and more predictable travel times and reduced fuel consumption. Andy Cliffe, chief executive of Midlands Expressway Ltd (MEL), operators of the M6toll, said: “Driving in rush hour can be frustrating, time-consuming and harmful to health. “For those travelling through the


West Midlands, the quickest way to make a difference for the past 15 years has been to use the M6toll, avoiding the congested M6 motorway and other local routes. “We believe our road represents


an easier, stress-free driving experience – and it is important to us that more people are able to enjoy that experience. Less congestion makes for a safer drive and more reliable journeys, which is good for the wellbeing of people and businesses in the region.”


Midland Heart rolls out its refurbishment programme


Midland Heart is replacing more than 1,600 kitchens and bathrooms in its properties across the Midlands as part of a multi-million pound refurbishment programme. Chief executive Glenn Harris met some of the


tenants who are getting new kitchens and bathrooms, as well as staff from the contractors carrying out the work. Contractors Lovell and J Tomlinson are helping to deliver the programme. Glenn said: “It’s always good to experience the


positive partnership working that exists between Midland Heart teams and our contractors in delivering a high quality product to our customers. “More importantly, I really enjoyed meeting


customers who are going through the process of having their kitchens and bathrooms replaced. “This gives me a real feel for how much this is


appreciated as well as being able to see first-hand how our refurbishment programme lifts the quality of our existing homes.” Midland Heart is also motoring ahead with


agreements to replace part of its vehicle fleet – with the in-house maintenance team taking delivery of 55 new vehicles for 1 April. Following shortly after on 1 July are 11 vans and


three caged drop-sided trucks for the firm’s rangers team. The contracts with vehicle management group LeasePlan are worth more than £1.78m over five years. Greg Lakin, director of assets and delivery, said: “The combination of a new, more efficient fleet, the

opportunity to improve cost effectiveness and the support with helping us to reduce issues such as downtime due to a vehicle being off the road made this an attractive agreement.”
