WIRRAL'S motorists will have a road closure to avoid nearby on the National Highways network this week.

And it is expected to cause delays of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure is due to start over the next two weeks:

• M53, from 9pm December 11 to 5am December 12, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M53 northbound, J2 to J2 - carriageway closure for horticulture.

National Highways is responsible for maintaining motorways and major A-roads, so closures of smaller roads will not be included in their schedule.
