The final set of motorway closures as part of the work to widen the M6 where it joins the M55 have been announced.

The scheme was fully opened to traffic on Thursday, and temporary speed limits lifted, but further overnight closures are needed to finish the job.

The M6 northbound will be closed tonight between junction 31 and 32, the Broughton interchange, from 9pm until 6am. Diversions will be in place.

The eastbound link from the M55, heading away from Blackpool and on to the northbound M6 will be closed overnight, between 9pm and 6am each night, tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Junction 32 northbound will be closed on Monday night between 9pm and 6am.

Diversions will be signposted.
