Cheshire East Highways are taking advantage of lower traffic levels over the summer holiday period to undertake essential works in Middlewich over a two week period between August 15 and August 26.
Residents may have seen advanced signage placed on roads in Middlewich, where a number of routes will benefit from works to improve the condition of roads in the area.
All of these works are planned overnight when traffic levels are at their lowest.
- Works start on August 15 where resurfacing of St Michael’s Way will take place under a road closure, between 7:30pm and 5am.
- Booth Lane will be closed over three nights and resurfaced between August 16 and August 18 from 7:30pm to 5am.
- Resurfacing of the Leadsmithy Street traffic signals junction will then take place under a road closure between 7:30pm and 5am, August 19 to August 23.
Traffic lights at Nantwich Road aqueduct are also to be upgraded between August 22 and August 26 with works taking place under a road closure, 9:30am to 3:30pm. The section of road underneath the aqueduct will also be resurfaced, to take full advantage of the closure in place.
Alternative routes will be signed to help with the movement of traffic whilst works take place. Road closures will protect the safety of both the workforce and the public.
Advanced warning signs are in place to help road users plan their journey, with affected residents and local businesses also being notified via letter.
Councillor David Brown, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member for highways and infrastructure said, "There are a number of significant highways improvements planned for Middlewich and we are working to minimise disruption by planning these over the summer holiday period.
“We are urging people to note these dates and the alternative routes in place, whilst these essential works to improve traffic flow are completed. We request public co-operation to ensure the roads are kept clear of all cars during these times.”
Information about these works, including diversion routes, can be found on the roadworks and improvements page at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/highways.
