  • Thank you for your contacting us about signage relating to a road closure.. We would not generally sign on a access slip to advise the closures of the next junction. Full diversion routes are provided, and we're sorry this inconvenienced you. It may be helpful to check for closures prior to any night time journeys . Information about road works is available from: • our Customer Contact Centre tel: 0300 123 5000 • on Twitter @HighwaysNWEST. • One Network which also gives information on road closures and also shows local authority works.

    Kind regards National Highways
