Cheshire West and Chester Council will carry out public realm improvement works on Frodsham Street in Chester, beginning in late June through to March 2017. This is the next phase of work associated with the new Chester Bus Interchange.
To carry out these works safely Frodsham Street is closed and the way Frodsham Street traffic is routed through the city has changed. To ease the flow of traffic and maintain services for businesses and residents, Foregate Street has been joined to Eastgate Street by a temporary road.
Access to the Kaleyards car park will be maintained at all times throughout the work. However, there may be times, depending on where the contractor is working, that access to Frodsham Street will be via a signed diversion route.
Access arrangements will change, depending on where the contractor is working, but will be signposted. Access will be either:
- where it is now
- the entry via the Iceland end, exit via Foregate Street
- the entry and exit via the service road near Poundland
- the entry and exit via the Iceland end - with two-way traffic lights.

Starting 27 June 2016
Buses that normally use stops in Frodsham Street or Foregate Street will pick up at new temporary stops at the Argos end of Foregate Street and also in Love Street around the corner from Café Nero. Bus stops on Vicars Lane and the Bars will also be used for a number of services.
Temporary road to connect Eastgate Street to Foregate Street
In front of the Royal Bank of Scotland, a temporary road surface has been laid in place of the existing paved area. Traffic will only be able to use the temporary connecting road when Frodsham Street is closed.
