Repair work on a bridge will see M6 closures.

A bridge which carries the M6 over Westfield Brook, between junction 32 of the motorway at Broughton and junction 33 at Galgate, is being repaired in a £50,000, two week project starting on Sunday.

Highways England project manager Mark Mosley said: “The work includes improving the bridge deck waterproofing and other measures to extend the life of this important structure. Work has been planned to minimise disruption to drivers’ journeys.”

Full closures of both the northbound and southbound carriageways between junction 32 and junction 33 will take place between 8pm and 6am on nights at the start and end of the scheme as traffic management is installed and removed.
