There will be no through route between the sliproad junctions and under the M6.

Diversion signs will be erected, and it is important drivers familiarise themselves with alternative routes and plan their journeys ahead.

Motorway traffic will be diverted to the next junction depending on the direction drivers wish to travel on the M6.

Northbound traffic from Lancaster and southbound traffic from Caton should use the sliproads as normal.

Non-motorway traffic such as tractors, scooters, and learner drivers must use Low Road and Halton Road from the Crook O’Lune.
