The Mersey Gateway Project

New road, lane and footpath closures

December 2, 2014adminNews

Essential work on the Mersey Gateway Project means the following road and lane closures will be in place over the coming days and weeks.

Date of closure Road / footpath Details
From 2/12/14 for approx. five months Ditton Junction to Speke Road on-slip road A sign-posted diversion will be in place which will take traffic west on Ditton Road to the Hale Road junction and back onto Speke Road.  View details.

Work continues between 9.30am and 3.30pm Monday to Friday 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.

This is causing severe traffic queues of up to 1.5 hours from the Silver Jubilee Bridge towards the M56 and we would encourage people to either try to find an alternative route or to allow plenty of time to get through the roadworks.

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.
