The works began last weekend to replace bridge bearings, an essential component that allows expansion and contraction with changes in temperature. However, due to unforeseen circumstances further works will be necessary overnight this weekend.

  • Friday 18 March 11pm – 6am
  • Saturday 19 March 10pm – 6am

As before, traffic will be stopped for a short time while the contraflow is set up.

Southbound traffic will be diverted to use the East tunnel, a height restriction of 4.8 metres will be in place for Northbound traffic during closures.

A diversion will be in place via Junction 30 for Southbound traffic as the entry slip road at Junction 31 will be closed due to the contraflow.
