Planned roadworks in the North West: Weekly summary for Monday 20 – Sunday 26 May

The following summary of planned new and ongoing road improvements over the coming week is correct as of Friday 17 May but could be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. All our improvement work is carried out with the aim of causing as little disruption as possible.

M56 Junctions 1 with M60 to 3, Baguley, South Manchester

A maintenance and repair project is taking place on a motorway bridge over a railway line in South Manchester. The eight-month scheme to repair the bridge – which carries the M56 Sharston Link over the Cheadle Branch railway line – is due to be completed by October. It involves replacing the existing parapets, repairing abutments, installing new expansion joints and bearings maintenance. Drivers are being advised that both the eastbound and westbound carriageways of the M56 between Junction 1 with the M60 and Junction 3 at Baguley, as well as junction slip roads, will be closed overnight, from 9pm until 5am, to allow the work to be carried out safely. Clearly-signed diversions will be in place when the road is closed.

M62 Junction 21 Milnrow

The eastbound entry slip road onto the M62 at Junction 21 near Milnrow will be closed overnight from 9pm on 22 May until 5am on 23 May for electrical work. A diversion will be in place.

A69 Newcastle to Carlisle

Work is taking place to resurface seven sections of the A69 between Newcastle and Carlisle, and will include Brampton, Hayton and Warwick Bridge in Cumbria. The project will be carried out between 7pm and 7am, and temporary speed limits will be in place. Part of the roundabout linking the A69 with the A689 at Brampton will be closed for two nights from Monday 3 to Wednesday 5 June, with traffic being diverted along a short section of the A689. HGVs will also be diverted along the A689 between Junction 44 of the M6 and Brampton when work places place at Warwick Bridge. The scheme is due to be completed on Friday 28 June.

– Keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.

– Get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.

– Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.

– Be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.

– Keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.

– Observe all signs – they are there to help you.
