And a further three closures will begin over the next seven days:

• A56, from 8pm January 24th to 5am February 5th, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 eastbound and westbound, junction 6 to 11 lane closures and carriageway closures due to carriageway repairs.

• M65, from 8pm February 3rd to 5am February 4th, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 eastbound, junction 9 to junction 10 - carriageway closure for barrier/Fence Safety Repairs.

• M65, from 9pm February 4th to 5am February 5th, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 westbound, junction 11 to junction 10 - carriageway closure for barrier/Fence Safety Repairs.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
