Northbound M6 Closure Junction 33-34 for Heysham link works

Drivers using the M6 around Lancaster in Lancashire are being advised of an overnight carriageway closure as part of ongoing works for the Heysham to M6 Link Road.

A full overnight closure of the northbound carriageway between junction 33 at Galgate and junction 34 for Lancaster will take place this Saturday (21 March) between 10pm and 6am. Northbound drivers will be diverted off the M6 at junction 33 and can re-join the northbound M6 at junction 34 via the A6 and A683 through the city of Lancaster.

The Lancashire County Council road project started in January of last year and is due to be completed next year.  The improvements around junction 34 include better motorway slip roads and a 600-space park and ride site just off the junction and work on these is now underway.

Lancashire County Council has a dedicated website for the project including up to date schedules of roadworks. http://heyshamlink.lancashire.gov.uk/ 

Drivers are urged to check travel conditions before setting out on journeys. The Highways Agency provides live traffic information via its website www.highways.gov.uk/traffic, local and national radio travel bulletins, electronic road signs and mobile platforms, such as the iPhone.
