Tinsley Viaduct

The Tinsley Viaduct at junction 34 near Meadowhall was closed in both directions to high-sided vehicles from 11am this morning, as a result of strong gusts of wind from Storm Gareth. 

Highways England confirmed high-sided vehicles are able to use the road as normal a few moments ago.  A spokesman said on Twitter: “Tinsley Viaduct is now open to high sided vehicles however strong winds remain in the area please take care.”
