We’re carrying out some essential maintenance work on the A57 between Hattersley roundabout (M67 junction) and Tintwistle to provide drivers with smoother and safer journeys.

We're carrying out resurfacing, electrical work and drainage repairs along sections of the A57 and a small part of the A628.

There will also be the small benefit of a reduction in noise for nearby customers.

We're starting work on Monday 24 May and expect to complete by December 2021. 

This is a rolling programme of work and not all sections of the route will be affected at the same time. Each stage needs to be carried out consecutively to manage the work safely.

  • Stage 1 Electrical street lighting work - May to June
  • Stage 2 Drainage refurbishment - July to September
  • Stage 3 Pavement and footways repairs - September to December

We're working with our partners to keep disruption to a minimum, but some of the equipment we need to use will be noisy. We'll work overnight from 6pm to 6am Monday to Friday.

We’ll try to finish the noisiest parts before 11pm to minimise noise as much as we can and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

To safely complete this work, we'll need overnight localised closures

During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the local authority and police.

We’ll be moving as we work, keeping other parts of the road open. 

Parking restrictions

We’ll need clear access to the carriageway to carry out this work. We’ll post letters to properties affected on the night that we need clear access and politely ask you not to park on this route on those nights.

It will be different sections on different nights as we move through the scheme. Your cooperation in this matter would be very much appreciated.

A57 Link Roads

The work detailed in this letter is planned maintenance and not linked to the A57 Link Roads scheme.



We’re installing new concrete central reservation safety barrier along a five-mile stretch and replacing aging steel barriers and installing new street lighting in the verge between Western Interchange and Daltry Street.

The safety barrier is life expired and the lighting improvements will provide drivers with more consistent lighting levels which are more energy efficient.

All these improvements including the improvements to signage and road surface will provide a safer, smoother journey for customers.

Work started on Tuesday 1 September 2020 and we’re hoping to complete the work by the end of May 2021. We’ll be working overnight between 8pm to 6am between Monday to Friday.

After Christmas we’ll be switching to full westbound closures with a lane 2 closure on the eastbound side between Daltry Street and Western Interchange. This is planned for around 55 shifts.

We’ll then concentrate on the section west of Western Interchange. This will involve around ten closures in each direction between Western Interchange and Melton.

  • During full closures access to and from associated junctions will be restricted affecting Western Interchange, Priory Way, Brighton Street and Daltry Street.
  • We’ll be working closely with our colleagues on the A63 Castle St scheme to ensure the two schemes join up and we share traffic management. 

Fully signed diversions will be in place, approved by local authority and police and only one side of the carriageway will be closed at any one time on both schemes.

To keep traffic moving during the day we’ll open the route in full, but speed will be limited to 40mph and camera enforced in both sections for safety while we replace the barrier.

We’re carrying out a series of improvements along the route between the A1(M) and Eastfield roundabout including resurfacing, improving crossing facilities and drainage.

This work will further improve safety and provide drivers with smoother journeys along the route, building on the £22m investment from last year.

We’re responsible for the maintenance and repair of the motorway structure which takes the A640 over the M62 between junctions 23 and 22 connecting Outlane and Pole Moor on the outskirts of Huddersfield.

We’ve assessed the structure as part of our routine inspections and identified some repairs that we’ll need to do to improve journey reliability for road users on this route.

We’re busy working with our specialist contractors to develop a suitable design for the repair work but until then we’ll need to reduce the A640 to a single lane carriageway under semi-permanent traffic lights.

We’re starting work on Monday 1 March 2021 carrying out repairs to the manholes during the day under temporary traffic lights for around four weeks. We’ll then install concrete barriers and semi-permanent traffic lights that will remain in place until winter 2021-22.

When we’ve completed the minor manhole repairs, we’ll need to close the A640 overnight for two nights at the end of March between 8pm and 6am to install the concrete barriers, road markings and traffic signals. The dates are still being finalised.

Pedestrian access will be maintained across the structure except during this closure.

A fully signed and approved diversion will be in place via Quebec Road, Rochdale Road, Slaithwaite Gate, Halifax Road, Round Ings Road and vice versa.

We are resurfacing the A66 westbound carriageway between Bowes junction and the Cumbrian border starting in June into August 2021.

In order to accommodate the westbound resurfacing, we will move all traffic onto the opposite carriageway with a single dedicated lane in each direction.

The single running lane in each direction will result in a slight increase to journey times as there will be no opportunity for overtaking between the Cumbrian border and Bowes junction.

We know this route is popular for people visiting the Lake District and attending the Appleby Horse Fair (if rescheduled).  We wanted to let people know these works could cause delays between June and August.



We need to undertake some repairs to three bridges on the A69 at West Denton. Some of the work we need to do will be noisy. To try and minimise the disruption caused to people living close to the work area we will be fully closing a 500m section of the A69 for three consecutive weekends.

  • Friday 9 April 8pm to Monday 12 April 6am
  • Friday 16 April 8pm to Monday 19 April 6am
  • Friday 23 April 8pm to Monday 26 April 6am

Noisy work will be carried out on Saturday between 8.30am and 5.30pm and Sunday between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

We will also need to close the same stretch of carriageway overnight 7pm to 6am each weeknight from Monday 12 April to Friday 7 May.

The A69 will be closed between the westbound on and off slip roads, and the eastbound on and off slip roads at West Denton Interchange. Clearly signed diversions will be in place.


The northbound exit slip road at junction 47 is being upgraded to improve safety and congestion for drivers.

We’re changing the layout of the junction, by adding an extra lane on the northbound exit slip road to ease congestion during busy times. We’ll also be carrying out some essential maintenance such as resurfacing and lining to improve safety.

To carry the work out we’ll be working within the hard shoulder, so we can keep the exit slip road open as much as possible. However we’ll need occasional full overnight closures of the northbound exit slip road at junction 47 and some of the main northbound carriageway for some of the work and to install and remove traffic management.

We’ll close a short section of the northbound carriageway and the exit slip road overnight between 8pm and 6am for the first three nights from Monday 25 January to install the traffic management and temporary safety barrier.

We’ll also need to close the exit slip road over two full weekends to carry out concrete repairs to the carriageway. The space we need to carry out the work is too wide for us to be able to use lane closures.

Weekend exit slip road closures will be between 8pm Friday and 6am Monday:

  • Friday 22 May to Monday 24 May
  • Friday 5 June to Monday 7 June

Closures will be signed in advance, the diversion will take you off the M1 at junction 46, along the A63 through Garforth and up the A656 to junction 47.

We’re working with our partners to minimise disruption and apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

The scheme is expected to take five months to complete.

We’re renewing and upgrading the bridge barriers (parapets) and associated safety barriers on the M18 at Langham Viaduct to further improve safety for drivers.

We’ll also be installing CCTV cameras to the existing gantry and installing new cabling to the nearside verge.

There will be full closures overnight between 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday.

The link lanes will also be reduced to one lane during the day at various times as we’ll need to install a temporary barrier to protect the parapet where we’ll be working.

Clearly signed diversions will be in place which have been agreed with the local authority and police.
