Overnight wear and tear repairs for M60 in south Manchester

ON the 8 January 2014, the Highways Agency has announced that wear and tear repairs, worth £190,000, will be taking place along the M60 in South Manchester later this month; providing safer and smoother journeys for drivers.

The work includes:-

► Renewing road markings along both the clockwise and anti-clockwise carriageways between Junction 5 at Princess Parkway and Junction 8 at Carrington.

► Tackling potholes and renewing road markings along both the clockwise and anti-clockwise carriageways between junction 10 at Trafford Boulevard and junction 11 at Barton.

► Resurfacing the entry slip road for the clockwise carriageway at junction J9 at Trafford Park.

► Resurfacing the exit slip road from the clockwise carriageway junction 11 at Barton.

The project will start on Thursday, 23 January 2013, and should be completed by the middle of March.

To minimise inconvenience to motorway users all the work; which involves some lane and slip road closures with short and clearly-signed diversions in place; will be done overnight when traffic is lightest.

The work will also require a full closure of either the clockwise or anti-clockwise carriageway for the Junction 10 to Junction 11 works. Clearly signed diversions from these junctions; as well as alternative diversions from Junctions ahead of these; will be in place.

The overnight work will be done along one section of the motorway over a few nights at a time and between 10pm and 5am each night except on Saturday and Sunday mornings when the finish time will be 7am.

The work has also been planned around known events; such as major football matches; in Manchester City Centre. Work maybe postponed or the start to an evening’s work delayed to allow event goers a smooth journey away from the City Centre. Other events such as concerts or Champions League fixtures which have yet to be confirmed may also trigger these arrangements.

Highways Agency project sponsor Jakub Malaj said:- "These are routine projects to tackle wear and tear along parts of the M60 around South Manchester and we have worked hard to time the work so it causes as little inconvenience to drivers as possible. The resurfacing and road marking work will ensure drivers can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.”
