£270k plan to repair M6 around Warrington
9:20am Friday 13th September 2013 in News
A £270,000 plan to repair part of the M6 around Warrington starts next month and will run until January.
Officials at the Highways Agency have announced the project, to run over four phases on 20 nights from October 1 until January 18, will ‘minimise inconvenience to motorway users’.
The repairs include tackling potholes, sealing cracks in the carriageway surface and renewing road markings and road studs. All the work will be done between 10pm and 5am each night or until 7am at the weekend. A 50mph speed limit will be in place past the roadworks.
Most of the work will be done without closing the carriageway with one or two lanes open to drivers, sometimes using the hard shoulder as a running lane.
However, link roads at Croft Interchange from junction 21a of the M6 onto the M62 at junction 10 and from the M62 onto the M6 may need to close overnight occasionally, the agency says.
Highways Agency project sponsor Jakub Malaj said: "This is routine maintenance to tackle wear and tear along one of the busiest stretches of the motorway network in the north west and the work will ensure that motorway users can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.
“While most drivers will be able to drive past the roadworks the link roads maybe closed from time-to-time but with good diversions in place.”
