The nine-month-long roadworks to improve the M6/M55 Broughton interchange near Preston are coming to an end.

The Highways Agency has published the final programme of overnight carriageway closures ahead of completion of the £7m “pinch point” widening improvement.

The project to reduce congestion around Junction 32 started in May 2014. The scheme was fully reopened to traffic and the temporary speed limit removed on Thursday.

Further closures are required to complete resurfacing, installing new roadmarkings and new traffic sensors.

A full overnight closure of the northbound carriageway between junction 31 at Samlesbury and junction 32 will take place tomorrow night between 9pm and 6am.

The eastbound link from the M55 onto the northbound M6 will be closed overnight – between 9pm and 6am tonight (Friday) and again on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

The northbound M6 will be closed overnight – between 9pm and 6am - at junction 32 on Monday night.

Drivers are being advised the southbound carriageway will be closed at junction 32 tonight between 9pm and 6am.

Diversions will be in operation.
