The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that two closures are due to start this week:

Drivers are facing holdups of between 10 and 30 minutes

• A56, from 9pm July 18 to 6am July 20, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 eastbound, junction 8 - 10 lane closures and slip road closures due to barrier scheme.

• A56, from 9pm July 25 to 5am July 28, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 eastbound and westbound, junction 7 to 10 lane closures and carriageway closures due to general maintenance works.

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