Major ongoing works
Weston Point Expressway / M56 Junction 12
Work is now taking place between 7pm and 5am Monday to Friday, and between 7am and 5pm Saturday and Sunday, along the Weston Point Expressway heading towards the M56 Junction 12. The road is down to one lane southbound as it approaches the roundabout / junction. Work is expected to continue until summer 2015.
Bridgewater / Daresbury / Central Expressway interchange
Work is underway here to create a new double roundabout which will provide a link between the Central Expressway and the Daresbury and Bridgewater Expressways when the new bridge opens. Expect diversions and disruption in this location until the new bridge opens in 2017.
Work is underway here to convert Ditton Roundabout to a junction with traffic lights. A number of roads in the area will be closed at different times until the new bridge opens in 2017. Expect diversions and disruption in this area as a result.
The information provided here is an overview of planned work and therefore subject to change.
The team may have to put in place overnight road closures or diversions at short notice due to emergency situations, and these may not be detailed here, but it is our aim to provide information that is as up to date as possible.
