Drivers using the M6 and M55 around Preston in Lancashire are being advised that some overnight carriageway closures will be taking place this weekend and on Monday night as part of the £7m pinch point widening improvements.

The Highways Agency is widening the northbound carriageway of the M6 ahead of and through junction 32 at Broughton Interchange where the motorway meets the M55.

Full carriageway closures of the northbound M6 between junction 31 and junction 32 as well as the southbound M6 within junction 32 will be taking place overnight on the following nights:

• Overnight tonight from 9pm to 6am tomorrow.

• Tomorrow night from 9pm to 6am on Monday

• Monday night from 9pm to 6am on Tuesday.

Clearly-signed diversions will be in place.

Drivers heading north along the M6 should leave at junction 31 and rejoin the motorway at junction 32 via the A59, A5085, A6 and eastbound M55. Drivers heading south along the M6 will need to join the westbound M55 from junction 32 and use the roundabout with the A6 at junction 1 to join the eastbound M55 and the link road for the southbound M6.
