M62 slip road to close for works

The Highways Agency will be carrying out resurfacing work at junction 26 of the M62 near Cleckheaton next week.

Tuesday, 9th October 2012, 3:48 pm

Work will take place overnight on the eastbound entry slip road from 8pm on Monday until 6am on Tuesday.

To ensure the work is carried out safely the agency will close the slip road and high occupancy vehicle lane overnight.

During the closure a clearly signed diversion route will be in place. There will also be lane closures on the roundabout and southbound exit slip road from M606.

Highways Agency project manager Alan Apps said:

“The work will improve the road surface along this slip road. During the works we advise road users to plan their journeys to avoid delays.

“Safety is our top priority and for the safety of road users and roadworkers we encourage all drivers to drive carefully past the works and along the diversion routes, keeping within the speed limit, and concentrating on the road ahead.”
