Caton Road (A683) under M6 motorway overnight closures 23rd and 24th November

From 8pm until 5am on the evenings of Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th November, a section of Caton Road (A683) will need to close from the northbound sliproads to the southbound sliproads of junction 34 to allow surfacing works.

The surfacing works were originally scheduled for the weekend of 13-16 November. This was postponed due to poor weather conditions forecast during the planned closure.

During the closure there will be no through route between the sliproad junctions and under the M6 motorway. Diversion signs will be erected, its important drivers familiarise themselves with alternative routes and plan their journeys ahead.

Motorway traffic will be diverted to the next junction depending on the direction drivers wish to travel on the M6. For example; southbound traffic from Lancaster will need to go north to junction 35 and then turnaround, likewise northbound traffic from Caton will also need to head in the opposite direction initially before re-joining the M6 at junction 33. Northbound traffic from Lancaster and southbound traffic from Caton should use the sliproads as normal.

Non-motorway traffic such as tractors, scooters, and learner drivers must use Low Road and Halton Road from the Crook O’Lune. Lancaster traffic bound for Caton will need to use the A6, Halton Road and Low Road. 

See the table below to see how this closure affects journeys that would normally use this section of Caton Road (A683).
