Despite earlier reports of the closures running for three weekends, Highways England subsequently confirmed the following two dates (17 – 20 January and 24 – 27 January) are at this point only reserved in case further works are required.

The closure is due to the removal of Nans Nook footbridge, which is located just south of Lancaster Motorway Services.

The work is subject to weather conditions, so there is a possibility it could be cancelled at short notice.
