Northbound Slip Road 10 Day Closure

13th July 2016

The northbound slip road onto the M6 at Junction 34 at Lancaster is being closed for ten days, from Friday night next week.

Costain - the developer of the Bay Gateway, which will link the M6 with Heysham, says it's so the existing slip road can be removed and a new one created.

That closure starts at 8pm on the 22nd of July, and it won't re-open until 6am on Monday the 1st of August.

Costain Project Manager Richard Helme said: "We have examined various options to enable us to construct the new link to the Lune West Bridge. The differing heights of the existing slip road and the new link road prevent us from maintaining traffic flow through the works. 

"This option is the most robust, ensuring that we can deliver the new northbound access with minimal impact.

"We appreciate the closure will inconvenience a number of people but would ask them to understand, and help us ensure that this element of the works is completed in a safe environment for both the workforce and the travelling public.

"We ask that drivers give themselves time at this junction and follow the traffic management signage."

The southbound slip road off the M6 at the same junction will be closed from 8pm to 6am on Friday the 22nd of July, and again between the same times on Saturday the 23rd of July.
