Important Travel Information

Greystone Bridge, M62 - near the western end of the M62 in Liverpool.  

We have been advised that Knowsley Council are set to erect a new footbridge over the M62 in Roby. As a result, the M62 will be closed from 10pm on Friday 9 October to 5am on Monday 12 October.

The extent of the road closures are described below:

  • M62 westbound carriageway from junction 6 exit slip for the M57 to junction 4 
  • M62 westbound junction 6 entry slip road
  • M62 eastbound carriageway from junction 4 to junction 5 
  • M62 westbound junction 5 entry slip road

The diversion route for vehicles effected by the road closure is via the M57, A580 East Lancashire Road and A5058 Queens Drive.

The erection of the new footbridge will replace the previous bridge that was demolished in August as it had reached the end of its serviceable life.

It is anticipated that the new bridge will be open to the public from week commencing Monday 19 October 2015.
