Ten nights of work will be carried out between Tuesday 16 September and Friday 10 October with single carriageway, junction-to-junction closures needed to allow the work to be delivered safely.
Highways Agency project sponsor Jakub Malaj said:
This is routine work to tackle wear and tear and ensure drivers using the M53 can continue to enjoy safe and reliable journeys.
All the work will be done overnight between 10pm and 5am or 7am on Saturdays and Sundays. Good, clearly-signed diversions will be in place when either the southbound or northbound carriageway is closed between junctions.
In June, the Agency’s North West director Alan Shepherd reassured residents that resurfacing and other repairs for the M53 were scheduled for and being delivered this year.
