Smoother, safer journeys for M67 drivers

A £214,000 Highways Agency project along the M67 in Tameside near Manchester will deliver smoother, safer journeys for users of the motorway.


Large sections of both carriageways along the whole length of the motorway between the junction with the M60 and junction 4 will benefit from resurfacing. New road studs and new road markings will also be delivered in overnight work due to begin on Friday 7 November and be completed by Friday 28 November.

Highways Agency project manager Jakub Malaj said:

This is work to tackle routine wear and tear along sections of the M67 and all the repairs will be done overnight when the motorway is at its quietest to minimise inconvenience to motorway users.

The work will require single, junction to junction overnight carriageway closures with clearly-signed diversions in place.

All the work and closures will be confined to periods between 10pm and 5am or 7am on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
