TWO lanes on the M6 northbound are set to remain closed for at least the rest of the week for bridge repairs.
The repairs are being carried out on a railway bridge between junction 17 for Sandbach and junction 18 for Middlewich and Holmes Chapel.
The bridge was stuck by a HGV during a serious collision on Tuesday morning.
Sadly, the driver of the HGV, a man in his 60s died.
Drivers are being warned that the lane closures are causing delays and this should be planned into journey times.
⚠️ #Cheshire be aware:
2 lanes are still closed following a bridge strike the other day, and will remain closed going into next week.
