Major road schemes
Resurfacing works, Station Road, Ellesmere Port
The new traffic signals are now up and running and the upgrade of the existing zebra crossing has also been carried out. Unfortunately the weather has hindered our programme which has resulted in a delay to resurfacing.
Road closures will only be in place overnight between the hours of 8pm and 6am to minimise disruption and the road will re-open during the day.
The road will be fully closed from the motorway to the Cromwell junction including through the junction of Station Road, Meadow Lane and Westminster Road. All side roads leading onto this section of road will also be closed at their junction. Any access required on residential roads/ (Meadow Lane or King Street) within the works will be guided through when safe to do so.
Other alternative and shorter local routes will remain open to traffic, we will only be signing the official diversion route. Whilst we appreciate that there will be unavoidable disruptions we will try to minimise traffic disruption working overnight and we ask people to bear with us whilst we make these essential improvements.
Duration of works
The works may be affected by weather conditions but at the moment the planned programme is as follows:
Wednesday 10 April 2019 and Thursday 11 April 2019: New carriageway resurfacing.
Friday 12 April 2019: Work will be completed with road markings. Final road closure will be in place overnight
Tuesday 16 April 2019: The switch on of the pedestrian phases on the new signals will take place. This will complete the works for this scheme.
Junction improvements at A49/A51 Red Fox, Tarporley
Works have been completed on the scheme. The junction is now open to traffic with the new signals up and running. The new signals will continue to be monitored over the next few weeks to ensure the smooth running of the junction.
