tunnelThat’s tomorrow!

The Kingsway (Wallasey) Tunnel will be closed in both directions overnight from 7pm on Friday 16th January.

It will re-open at 6.30am on Saturday morning.

The Queensway (Birkenhead) Tunnel will remain open as usual.

The night time works involve removing a major overhead gantry sign which spans the Wallasey plaza end of the Kingsway Tunnel.

As a result of the closure, all class 1 and class 2 traffic (cars; light vans; vehicles with two or less axles; and vehicles seating nine or less people) will be diverted to the Queensway Tunnel.

Unfortunately, Heavy Goods Vehicles (class 3 and class 4 traffic) are not permitted to use the Queensway Tunnel and, therefore, will be diverted via the Runcorn Bridge.
