The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure is due to start this week:

• A56, from 8pm January 4 to 6am January 22, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M65 eastbound and westbound, junction 6 to 11 lane closures and carriageway closures due to carriageway repairs.

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