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

Drivers in and around Merseyside will have eight National Highways road closures to contend with this week. And three of them are expected to cause delays of up to 30 minutes for motorists.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that three closures already in place are expected to carry on this week with another to begin on Monday:
