Roadworks close bridge

ROADWORKS have closed a motorway bridge in Ossett.

Diversions have been put in place until Friday, December 16, while Wakefield Council carry out work on Park Mill Lane to the bridge which crosses the M1 .

The Highways Agency has also started work to create an extra lane on either side of the slip roads and roundabout at Junction 39 of the M1 near Durkar.

The work is expected to be finished next February and drivers have been warned that the junction will be closed overnight occasionally.
