The Mersey Gateway Project

When the Mersey Gateway Bridge opens in autumn 2017 you will be able to travel uninterrupted between the Mersey Gateway Bridge and the Central Expressway.

You will also be able to join and leave the main route here through the new Bridgewater Junction – a new ‘dogbone’ roundabout at a low level beneath the main north-south route – which will provide a link between the Central Expressway and the Daresbury and Bridgewater Expressways.

The existing bridges along the canal towpath will be retained and there will be a significant programme of tree planting in the area.

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 marked 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.

If you have any comments or suggestions on how we could improve the information provided by Down Your Street, please email us at
