The works are as follows:
M55/M6 Broughton Interchange
The link road from the eastbound M55 onto the southbound M6 will be resurfaced in a £550,000 overnight roadworks project starting on Monday 7 June. The repairs will include resurfacing and replacing the road markings and road studs and should be completed by Saturday 19 June.
The work will be taking place between 8pm and 6am each night and the link road will be closed during these times. Drivers will need to join the northbound M6 instead, travelling up to junction 33 and joining the southbound M6 from there. Overnight on Tuesday 15 June the eastbound link road to both the northbound and southbound M6 will be closed.
Drivers will need to use the northbound A6 from junction 1 of the M55 and join the northbound or southbound M6 at junction 33. A 50mph speed limit will be in place around the clock during the work with a short section reduced to 30mph for safety reasons.
M55 Junction 4
A £700,000 overnight – 8pm to 6am – project to resurface sections of the motorway around junction 4 will be taking place between Tuesday 22 June and Wednesday 7 July. The repairs will include resurfacing and replacing the road markings and road studs along each of the slip roads at junction 4, a section of the eastbound carriageway and the westbound hard shoulder.
