Major road schemes and issues
Soot Hill, Northwich
The emergency closure of Soot Hill, Northwich in late December 2021 following a land slip affecting a substantial retaining wall that supported the highway.
Grosvenor Bridge, Chester
Unfortunately, the Bridge has been hit by vehicles twice in a six-month period - in March 2022 and then again in October 2022. In both cases, vehicles heading out of Chester failed to negotiate the left-hand bend onto the bridge and collided head on with the parapet. These impacts caused masonry blocks to fall on the footpath and cycleway below.
Queens Park Suspension Bridge
Following routine inspections of the 100-year-old bridge in spring 2023 a structures report was commissioned that has revealed issues with the metal work requiring immediate attention.
Our programme has now started. This includes our regular routine maintenance as well as any additional work in the borough.
