Motorists are being warned of further overnight closures of the M6 northbound during July.


The Highways Agency have announced during three weekends there will be night-time diversions as they continue the £7 million widening scheme.

Here are the closure times for between Junction 31 and 32 northbound:

Friday 11 July – 10pm to 6am
Saturday 12 July – 9pm to 6am
Friday 18 July – 10pm to 6am
Saturday 19 July – 9pm to 6am
Saturday 26 July – 9pm to 6am

Diversions are in place to direct traffic off the motorway.

A 50mph speed limit remains in force through to November on the stretch of the M6 and M55 near Junction 32 for the duration of the roadworks until November.

The roadworks are due to ease congestion at the two junctions which are regularly backed-up with rush-hour traffic.
