  1. THE ROAD CLOSURES ARE A SHAMBLES WHY IS THAT WHEN THEY SHUT PART OF THE MOTORWAY ON THE M56 YOU THEN HAVE TO GO MILES OUT OF THE WAY TO GET BACK ONTO YOUR ROUTE TO NORTHWICH. DO THESE PEOPLE WHO PLAN THE CLOSURES THINK OF THE INCONVENIENCE OF PARTICULARLY NIGHT SHIFT WORKERS WHO ARE TIRED ALREADY AND HAVE TO NAVIGATE DIVERSIONS WHICH GO AROUND AND ROUN.D. I AM JUST LOOKING TONIGHT THAT THE M56 WILL BE CLOSED AND I YOU HAVE TO COME OFF TOWARDS MANCHESTER AT THE NEXT JUNCTION THEY ARE CLOSING THE ROADS IE PRINCESS PARKWAY TO RESURFACE WHERE AM I SUPPOSE TO GOIT IS UNBELIEVEABLE

  2. HOW MUCH LONGER IS THIS ONGOING DISRUPTION GOING ON FOR ? WHO EVER THE ORGINISER AND ENIGINEER HEADING THIS ABORTION IS THEY SHOULD NEVER BE GIVEN ANOTHER JOB.

    Dear Sirs
    I am an old man and I drive from East Didsbury via the M56 to Hale every Tuesday evening. On Tuesday October 17th although I got there OK, I found my attempt to return on the motorway blocked as the Hale junction was closed for my return journey. I had no idea how to return home and ended up having to drive miles out of my way via Wilmslow in order to get home. Yesterday evening I again got to Hale OK and yet again found the motorway access closed for my return journey. This time I followed the diversion signs and ended up going in the wrong direction on the M56 for several miles before reaching the A56 roundabout where I was able to turn around and come back on the M56 in the right direction. I was then faced with a massive tailback as the motorway was down to one lane for several miles. Eventually I got home but again added several miles to my journey and much stress. Are you able to tell me therefore how long this chaos will continue for and will the junction again be closed for my return journey on October 31st? I have no satnav if that would have helped me.
    Kind Regards
    Howard Stubbings

  4. coming back (heading west) from Manchester last night (11 Oct 2023) , 9.45 pm and signs said M56 closed from jn 5 to 9…..however could access the junction. I came home via a very circuitous route as didn’t wish to get stuck. Is the whole motorway inaccessible when these signs go up in the evening?? I suspect that I could have used the motorway. No info here?? What is happening???

  5. Can you tell me if I can get to Manchester Airport via M56 coming from the M6 direction at 3am on the 6th June 2023 please?
