M2 Selling Road Expansion Joints

M2 Selling Road Expansion Joints

Message from National Highways:

We'll shortly be carrying out work to rectify expansion joints on the bridge which carries Selling Road near junction 7 of the M2 Motorway.

The works will require us to fully close the bridge on Tuesday 19 April, Wednesday 20 April and Thursday 21 April from 8.00pm until 6.00am the next morning. Selling Road carriageway will be opened each morning.

There will be a four and half mile diversion route via Owen's Court Road, Newhouse Lane, A251 and A2 which will be clearly signed.

The works will not prevent any residents gaining access to their properties. The closure is for the bridge itself only and the road in close proximity to the bridge will be open for local residents' access only. There may be some noise which we apologise for in advance and will try and reduce as much as possible by using acoustic fencing.

Please note that these works are subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. We'll advertise the closures on yellow signs placed in advance at the junction/alongside the road.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption you may experience during this work.

Should you have any questions, or would like to know about our work, please contact us on 0300 123 5000 and quote M2 - 602791 or email
