WORK to repair and resurface parts of the northbound M6 near junction 36 will get underway next month.

The £250,000 project, at Millness, will include repairing the foundations of the carriageway in lane one and resurfacing parts of lane two.

This will be carried out over two weekends starting on February 21 (Friday) and finishing on March 3 (Monday).

The exit slip road at junction 36 will also be resurfaced.

The work will start at 8pm on each of the two Friday evenings and finish by 6am on each Monday morning.

Between 8pm and 8am each day two lanes of the carriageway are likely to be closed with one lane closed during the day.

There will be alternate closures of the northbound exit slip road and entry slip road with drivers sent on clearly-signed diversions using alternative routes along the M6.

Highways Agency project sponsor Peter Gee said: “These repairs will provide drivers with safer, smoother journeys along the main carriageway and on the slip road onto the A590 and local roads network.”
