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

And two of them are expected to cause moderate delays – with drivers facing waits of between 10 and 30 minutes.

The latest expected works list, with notes from National Highways, shows that one closure already in place is expected to carry on this week:

• M53, from 9pm May 13 to 5am June 12, slight delays (under 10 minutes): M53 both directions, junction 5 to junction 4 - lane closure for carriageway - reconstruction/renewal.

And a further two closures will begin over the next two weeks:

• M53, from 9pm June 22 to 5am June 23, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M53 northbound and southbound, junction 1 to 3 carriageway closure due to general maintenance works.

• M53, from 9pm June 23 to 6am June 24, moderate delays (10-30 minutes): M53 northbound, junction 3 to 1 - lane closure and carriageway closure for due to inspections.

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