RESURFACING work is beginning on one of the busiest motorway interchanges in the North-west.

The Croft interchange, where the M62 meets the M6 near Warrington, Cheshire, is used by around 100,000 drivers a day.

A spokesman for the Highways Agency said the resurfacing would cause minimal disruption, with work taking place at night, over three nights.

The westbound and eastbound link roads from the M62 to the M6 northbound at Junction 21a will be closed on the nights of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Highways Agency project manager Freda Rashdi said: "We will work during the night so that by the time most drivers hit the motorway in the day, the diversion will have been removed and they should notice little or no difference to their journey.

"The surface of this very busy stretch of motorway is beginning to show signs of wear, so it is important to replace it with new materials."
