Drivers in and around St Helens will have five National Highways road closures to watch out for this week.

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with motorists facing holdups of between 10 minutes and half an hour.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

Most Popular

    A580, from 9pm July 23 to 5am July 25, slight delays (under 10 minutes): A580 clockwise and anti-clockwise, junction 23 to junction 23 - Lane closure for Horticulture.

    And a further four closures will begin over the next seven days:
