M6 Bridge Maintenance Work - Junctions 32 to 33

The Parish Council has been informed of a package of maintenance work to Foxhouses Bridge, located on the M6 between junctions 32 and 33. The work will take place on both sides of the carriageway, and will include:

  • resurfacing sections of the carriageway on the M6
  • replacing bridge joints
  • replacing road markings and road studs

Work is being carried out by Highways England (HE) and is due to start on or shortly after 4 October 2021, lasting for three weeks. Work will take place between the hours of 9pm and 6am.

During these works, overnight full closures are required on the M6 between junctions 32 and 33. HE will only close on side of the carriageway at a time, and localised signed diversion routes will be in place.

Lancashire Police will provide a dedicated patrol service along the diversion route whilst the motorway is closed, to ensure motorists stay within the speed limit and to deal with any incidents along the route. If your property is on the diversion route, you may notice more traffic going past your property.
