The Mersey Gateway Project

When the new Mersey Gateway Bridge opens, the main A562 Speke Road which leads towards Liverpool will be redirected to take traffic directly to and from it. There will be no toll barriers or booths so traffic will flow freely across the river.

Beneath the main road to and from the bridge, Ditton Junction is changing from a roundabout to a junction with traffic lights. When it’s all finished, if you are heading to or from Widnes you will still be able to head towards Liverpool or cross either the new Mersey Gateway Bridge or the Silver Jubilee Bridge from Ditton Junction.

What will it look like?


Section 1 - Ditton Junction


The information provided in this map and the phased elements is an overview of planned work and therefore subject to change. Minor works such as offpeak lane closures may not be shown on the maps. 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 marked on the map, but it is our aim to keep these maps as up to date as possible.
