Disruption for drivers

Have your say

Motorists are set to face disruption with overnight motorway closures, as part of the £7m pinch point widening project around Broughton.

The northbound carriageway of the M6 between junction 31 at Samlesbury and junction 32 at the Broughton Interchange will be closed overnight from 10pm on July 18, from 9pm on July 19 and from 9pm on July 26.

The carriageway will reopen by 6am the following morning.

Overnight closures of the link road from the eastbound M55 onto the southbound M6 will take place between 9pm and 6am on July 16 and 17, and also on July 22 and 23. The southbound carriageway of the M6 will be also totally closed at junction 32 overnight between 9pm on July 19 and 6am on July 20.

Drivers will be sent off at junction 32 along the link road on to the westbound M55. They will then exit the M55, join the eastbound M55 and rejoin the southbound M6 via the link road from the M55.

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