A large stretch of the M6 motorway through Greater Manchester is set to close in stages this month.

The motorway will be closed at different times throughout July. This will be for adding extra emergency areas, new technology and a lane in each direction to the motorway between junctions 21a and junction 26.

Daytime work has been carried out, but this part of the project has been completed. There will now be overnight work that will take place throughout the coming month. These closures are part of upgrades to the road between Warrington and Wigan. On the days of the closures, the road will be closed between 9pm and 6am.
