A £326,000 maintenance programme along the A627(M) between Rochdale and Oldham in Greater Manchester will get underway next week.

All work on the Highways Agency project will be done overnight to minimise inconvenience to motorway users. The work includes filling pot holes, repairing fretting and cracking in the carriageway surface, renewal of road markings and road studs.

The project also involves replacing any worn bridge expansion joints, concrete repairs and inspection of the carriageway for damaged waterproofing and carrying out repairs where necessary.

The work is due to start on Monday July 2 with work over 24 nights before the scheme completion date of Wednesday August 1.

The work will be carried out in six phases over four miles of the route between Junction 1 at the Oldham end and Junction 4 near Rochdale.

Highways Agency project sponsor Jakub Malaj, said: “This is routine maintenance designed to give the motorway an engineering ‘spring clean’ and ensure that drivers can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.

“Traffic volumes along the A627(M) are very light overnight anyway but we have worked hard to minimise any inconvenience to drivers by combining eight different projects in one scheme and by carrying out the work in phases.”
