National Highways acted upon feedback, and have confirmed dates for a new schedule starting this Sunday.
As said in a previous article, essential work is taking place to remove and replace the existing road surface and waterproofing system on the Whittingham Lane Bridge and Stewart’s Wood Bridge which carry the M6.
The new schedule of works will start on Sunday 9 October, and will require a series of coordinated overnight road closures and traffic management measures to ensure the motorway remains open during the daytime and a safe environment for both workers and road users.
