Motorway slip road closure

The Highways Agency will be resurfacing the M62 at junction 24 next week.

Work will take place on the eastbound entry and exit slip roads at the Ainley Top junction from Monday 22 to Saturday 26 October, between 9pm-6am.

The slip roads wil be closed overnight to allow work to be done. The entry slip road will be closed on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 October. Diversions will be signposted in place to J25. There will be a separate route signed for high vehicles over 15’9” (4.80m). The exit slip road will be closed on Wednesday 24, Thursday 25 and Friday 26 October. Traffic will be diverted to j25 of the M62, where it will exit the motorway and return via the westbound carriageway, leaving the M62 at the junction 24 westbound exit slip road.

Highways Agency project manager, Alan Apps, said: “During the work we advise road users to plan their journeys to avoid delays.”
