‘Once we reach the M18 the load will be taken off at J2 then on again due to its weight and same again at J6 so please pay attention to our officers giving traffic instructions.

‘When we reach the M62 we will be stopping ALL traffic that is behind us and the M62 will be closed to allow this load to
travel contraflow to J36 where it will then exit onto the A161.

‘We cannot move at any other time due to permit restrictions and involvement by numerous other agencies along its route.

‘We suggest that you take an alternative route if possible to save you from becoming stuck behind us.’
