A SECTION of the Chain Bar linking the M606 with the M62 is being closed for at least six nights.

National Highways Limited has made a traffic prohibition order on the two motorways to enable bridge expansion joint replacement, carriageway resurfacing, white lining, road studs and associated works to be carried out in safety.

The effect of the order will be to close the link road connecting the M606 southbound carriageway with the M62 westbound carriageway at Junction 26 at Chain Bar.

Bradford Council has announced that the works are expected to start today for six nights, or until completed, and will take place between 8pm and 6am.

During the closure a suitably signed alternative route will be available at all times. Traffic signs will indicate the extent of the prohibition - which will not apply to emergency service vehicles or vehicles being used in connection with the aforementioned works or for winter maintenance or traffic officer purposes.

The order came into force yesterday and has a maximum duration of 18 months. For more information about this notice contact Clair Galloway on 0300 470 2593 or email clair.galloway@highwaysengland.co.uk
