The closures to A roads and motorways affect drivers in Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral.

Drivers in and around Merseyside will have 10 National Highways road closures to contend with this week.

And four of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing waits of up to 30 minutes.
