M56 overnight closures postponed

The full overnight closures of the M56, due to take place on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 January, have been postponed by one week.

This is to allow for additional work to be carried out at the same time.

The M56 junction 11 to 12 will now be closed overnight on:

  • Saturday 28 January, 9 pm – 6 am
  • Sunday 29 January, 9 pm – 6 am

By carrying out more work over the same weekend we’ll be reducing the number of closures needed, minimising disruption on customers.

See the M56 junction 11 to 12 westbound diversion and the M56 junction 12 to 11 eastbound diversion.
