BMF is urging all members and motorcycling enthusiasts to get behind the campaign to have a new M6 link road opened by John McGuinness with a ride out for St John's Hospice.

Work on the Heysham to M6 Link Road started in 2014 and is set to open summer 2016.

Although the Isle of Man TT legend will not have the road named after him, North West Honda Lancaster have approached Lancashire County Council about the idea of McGuinness leading a charity ride out of local bikers in support of St John’s Hospice to open the link road.

According to Lancashire County Council, “the new road will complete the long awaited connection from the Heysham and Morecambe peninsula to Junction 34 of the M6, and will be a 4.8km dual carriageway with a footpath and cycleway along the entire route”.

“The project also involves a fully remodelled junction 34, with new slip roads, a new bridge over the River Lune and a 600 space park and ride site. The new road will provide better access for residents, businesses and tourists to the area.”

The official name will be announced in March 2016. Watch the video below to find out more about the building work behind the project.
