Work on Mersey Gateway continues to progress

Highways Reporters

Work on the Mersey Gateway project is progressing well as a key stretch of roadworks heads in to its next phase from 26 September.

From next Monday (26 September) traffic travelling south from Liverpool to the Silver Jubilee Bridge will no longer have to follow the old Ditton Roundabout route.

The new road under Ditton junction bridge will be opened and Ditton roundabout will be reconfigured to a signalised junction. The southbound Queensway onslip from Ditton junction to the Silver Jubilee Bridge will close.

This new arrangement will be in place for around 12 months until the new bridge opens and the permanent road network in the area is opened.

Hugh O’Connor, general manager of Merseylink, said: “We’re still on track to open the new bridge in autumn 2017 and it is good that we’re now starting to open new routes as well as closing them. There will be clear signage in place to show drivers where to go once they arrive at the new-look Ditton Junction, but, as ever, we’re asking people to take their time and drive safely while they get used to the changed layout.”
