M1/M62 Lofthouse bridge work
We’re carrying out a programme of essential refurbishment work on Lofthouse interchange to maintain and improve the north, south, east and west bridge structures.
The structure opened in December 1970 and carries 45,000 vehicles per day, it’s a crucial intersection of connecting east, west, south and north as well as crucial support for our economy.
We’re carrying out a series of repairs to the concrete bridge deck ends, waterproofing course, expansion joints and surfacing to create a safe, reliable journey for road users.
This programme has been developed to minimise disruption and optimise resource providing long-term stability, greater lifespan and reducing the need for less delays and lane closures for repairs in the future.
When complete the scheme will create a safer, more reliable and smoother journey for road users.
