The staff at Car Hire Manchester Airport are extremely pleased that the roadworks of last weekend have been completed.
The diversions and road works on the M56 near Manchester Airport which saw closures between junction 5 and junction 6 over the weekend have now been reopened.
It saw diggers tear down the bridge over the M56, to make way for a new state-of-the-art bridge. The planned demolition was part of a £5.5 million project to improve access to AirportCity and a future housing project.
The section of the motorway was closed from Friday night until around 1am Monday morning. The works were completed hours ahead of schedule, the Highways Agency stated.
