Network Rail has announced a series of road closures on Merseyside as it carries out repairs to an overhead railway bridge.
Repair work to the Rainford Bypass railway bridge, St Helens, will see lane closure in place from Monday 20 July until Monday 19 October.
During the work, lane closures will be in place between Mossborough Island and Lodge Lane/Bushy Lane.
There will also be six full road closures between 5pm on a Saturday to 6am on a Monday on weekends between July and October.
The full list of weekends where full road closures will be in place are: Saturday 18 July to Monday 20 July; Saturday 25 July to Monday 27 July; Saturday 5 September to Monday 7 September; Saturday 12 September to Monday 14 September; Saturday 17 October to Monday 19 October, and Saturday 24 October to Monday 26 October.
During the weekend closures, a road diversion will be in place and will be clearly signposted. Access for pedestrians and cyclists will remain open while the repairs are carried out.
Nathaly Oshodin, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: "I'd like to thank residents and road users in advance for their patience while we complete this major upgrade to the railway bridge over the Rainford bypass.
"The Great North Rail Project investment will secure the bridge's future for road users below and improve the reliability of rail journeys for rail passengers above. "
