IMPORTANT repair work is set to start on a footbridge over the East Lancs Road.

Scheduled to start overnight on Monday (September 26), the work will repair handrails and surfacing on the footbridge near to the East Lancs junction with Kenyons Lane, Haydock.

The footbridge is also set to be totally repainted.

The work, expected to take around a month, will see overnight lane closures along that stretch of the East Lancs - but traffic will still be able to pass.

St Helens Council chiefs say daytime traffic will remain unaffected throughout.
