Critical safety work at Sydney Road Bridge in Crewe will require the closure of the road on Sunday 22 July from 1am to 8am.
The work involves lifting out rail electrification gantries by a crane positioned on the bridge above. Normally, this would be done from the railway tracks. However, closing the road and using the crane from the bridge will reduce noise disruption for residents by enabling the noisiest tasks to be completed in one weekend, rather than over two weekends.
Further overnight closures may be required in advance of the main bridge replacement scheduled to start in October. Details of this work will be publicised nearer the time.
Meanwhile, surfacing work at the Crewe Green Roundabout will take place on Saturday 21 July, between 8am and 11pm. During this time, the link between Hungerford Road and Sydney Road will be closed.
This will then be followed by the closure of the A534 at the roundabout on Sunday 22 July, between 8am and 6pm, for further surfacing work to be carried out.
