Until 2026, the St Anne's Road bridge over the M67 will be closed along with the M67 junction 2 eastbound on-slip.

For the duration of the project, St Anne's Road will be reopened near the former Penny Farthing pub, as a diversion route. Pedestrians and cyclists will also be able to use Angel Street footbridge.

Latest updates

The next closure of the M67 for these works will be in October 2024. Please check back for further updates.

The existing bridge which carries St Anne’s Road over the M67 motorway requires extensive structural repairs due to its age and its outdated style of construction.

Not taking action to repair the bridge risks the safety of road users in the future.

National Highways have determined that the best solution is to replace the bridge completely. This is quicker, safer, and more practical than repairing it. Replacing the bridge will mean short-term disruption to residents but it will bring long-term benefits to the area and ensure the safety of road users for decades to come.

The construction of a new bridge will require St Anne’s Road bridge to be closed for approximately three years.
