National Highways has confirmed the closure of two local roads to complete ‘essential’ maintenance work on two M6 bridges in September and October.

National Highways is to carry out waterproofing and barrier maintenance work on the M6 Whittingham Lane and Stewart’s Wood Bridges, which carry the M6 over Whittingham Lane and Stubbins Lane near Broughton, north of junction 32. 

They will close roads under each bridge, Whittingham Lane (B5269) at Broughton and Stubbins Lane, from the weekend of Friday, 30 September, to Monday, 3 October to complete ‘bridge strike repairs’, with weekend closures expected at J32-33 on the M6.

National Highways recommended that all customers use the signed diversion routes to avoid several weight and height restrictions on local roads. The diversion route also minimises noise and traffic disruption for local residents.

They said they are ‘mindful’ that it will cause delays and disruption and have taken work on the M56, junctions 5 to 9, into consideration.

Residents should avoid the area by choosing another route if one is available and plan for longer journey times.

Those living on the diversion route will experience increased traffic and noise during these closures.

National Highways apologised in advance and thanked people for their patience.
