Work to repair a motorway bridge is set to begin later this month.

The £150,000 Highways Agency project will focus on the bridge carrying the M6 over Whittingham Lane at Broughton and will involve at least three overnight closures of the northbound M6 between junction 32 and junction 33 as well as two full weekend closures of the link road from the eastbound M55 onto the northbound M6.

The overnight closures of the northbound carriageway will take place over three nights between 10pm and 6am each night on Sunday March 23, Friday March 28 and Sunday March 30.

Highways Agency project sponsor Mark Mosley said: “This is important remedial work to renew waterproofing and prevent damage to the bridge structure.

“Drivers will need to allow extra time for journeys when travelling on the M55 link road and M6 northbound.”
