M56 closed weekend of 28th Feb/1st March 2015

by Iain Roberts on 20 February, 2015

From Manchester Airport:

The Highways Agency and their appointed contractors are continuing work to replace the Thorley Lane Bridge over the M56, situated between junctions 5&6.

To enable the successful completion of the works a full closure of the M56 between Junctions 5 and 6 in both directions is planned from 22:00 on Friday 27 Feb to 05:00 on Monday 2 March 2015. This is to permit the new bridge to be installed in its final position. Following this work it is anticipated that the bridge will be fully open for public use at the end of March.

Whilst significant work has been undertaken to minimise disruption to airport users, it is inevitable that some delays will be experienced during peak times. All airport users are therefore encouraged to allow additional time for journeys to and from the airport during this period.

Further details of this closure and diversion routes here.
