Travel - Delays expected on the M6 at Thelwall

Drivers are being warned they may meet delays along a section of the M6 today as emergency work is needed to repair a bridge joint at Thelwall Viaduct.

The Highways Agency says damage has been discovered to one of the viaduct bridge joints - which allow the bridge structure to expand and contract in changing temperatures - and needs immediate repair.

Two lanes of the southbound carriageway between junctions 21 and 20 are closed and access to the southbound carriageway from junction 21 has also closed.

The work is expected to last into the evening.
