Drivers have been warned to watch out for roadworks on the M62 this week.

An update from Highways England warned of improvements being carried out at three locations on the M62.

At junction 26 Bradford – the M606 interchange – there will be narrow lanes and a 30mph speed limit in place until a project to add an extra lane to the roundabout at the junction is completed in the autumn. The slip roads and roundabout will be down to a single lane from 7pm to 6am until Thursday, August 25). The closure will take place between 8pm and 6am and drivers will be able to follow signed diversion routes.
