The Mersey Gateway Project

This junction has been modified to provide a quick link between the M56 motorway and the new main route through Runcorn to the Mersey Gateway Bridge and onwards towards Liverpool and the M62.

There will be activity in this area until mid-2017, but the majority of the work was completed by summer 2016.

What’s happening at M56 Junction 12?

What will it look like?



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.
