Cheshire M6 weekend overnight closures near Winwick

A stretch of the M6 motorway in Cheshire will be closed overnight for two nights to allow essential maintenance work to be carried out.

The southbound side will be closed between junction 23 at Newton Le Willows and junction 21a at the M62 interchange from 22:00 GMT on Saturday until 06:00 on Sunday.

The northbound carriageway on the same section will then close from 22:00 on Sunday until 06:00 on Monday.

Diversion routes will be in place.

The Highways Agency said narrow lanes were being removed as part of a project to renovate motorway bridges.
