Along with many parts of the UK, Halton experienced high winds yesterday (Wednesday 19th September) and at approximately 15:00 Merseylink were alerted to a damaged street light on the Mersey Gateway Bridge. Merseylink immediately attended the site and inspected all street light columns as a precaution as more high winds are expected. As a result, a number of columns were removed. We apologise for any inconvenience and if our lane closures caused some delays however, safety of our road users is paramount . There will be further lane closures over the coming days as we continue to monitor the bridge and street furniture. We will aim to keep disruption to a minimum. Updates will be provided on our website and social media.
