Overnight closures and lane closures are due to begin from Friday as the M6 roadworks at Broughton continue.


A £7 million project to widen the northbound M6 at Junction 32 started on Monday 12 May and is now moving into another phase.

The Highways Agency say they will start narrow lane running plus occasional overnight slip road and carriageway closures until November when the project is due to finish.

Overnight closures start at 9pm every day apart from Fridays when they start at 10pm. They go through until 6am the following morning.

During the closures there will be signed diversions in place via the A59, A5085 and A6 at the following locations:


– M6 northbound carriageway between junction 31 – and junction 32
– M6 northbound carriageway through junction 32
– M6 Junction 31 northbound entry slip road
– M6 Junction 31A northbound exit slip road, and
– M6 northbound to M55 westbound link road

There is also a 50mph speed restriction in force along sections of the M6 and M55 throughout the project.

Delays of 10 minutes are expected between Junctions 31 and 33 northbound for the duration of the roadworks.

Highways Agency bosses say the scheme is to tackle congestion in the area.
