Major road schemes

Roadworks during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Our Highways teams are responding to urgent works to keep the borough’s highway network safe. We will continue with work that can still be completed safely with social distancing.

Some work that would need staff to work close together has been postponed.

Transport disruption in Chester

We are investing in Chester city centre, creating amazing places and high quality facilities for people to enjoy such as Chester Northgate.

Impact to the highways and some inconvenience to journeys into and out of the city centre is unavoidable. We are working to keep disruption to a minimum and keep you informed when and where impact will be the greatest. You can find more information about transport distruption in Chester on our website.
