    A1 is always at least dual carriageway Mick. Can get a bit slow with lorries at peak times, and there is a 50mph roadworks for about half an hour before you would turn at Scotch Corner to go on the A66 to Penrith (that's cos I live 5 minutes from Scotch Corner and so I know these things :D ).

    I used to use the toll road lots when I was going Cumbria to London and loved it. But as Simon said, that time of morning is the worst for traffic.

    Hubby says go up A1 to Scotch Corner and then the A66 across to M6, then stay on M6 then the M74 to Glasgow. He was a long distance Lorry driver.

    Thx terry I think I will go that way to the Trafford centre for the stop off
    Mick, this is by far your best route if you want to call in at the Trafford Centre en-route to Scotland.
    The A50 is a dual carriageway which takes you straight into Stoke-on-Trent where it by passes the city.
    You will see signs for the M6 and you have an option to either enter the A500 [South] by turning left at the roundabout immediately after Stoke FC in order to join the M6 at J15, or you could turn right at that roundabout and take the A500 [North] to join the M6 at J16.
    From the M1 it will be a dual carriageway on the A50 and A500 all the way.
