Wharton Bridge, Winsford


South-side (westbound) of Wharton Bridge/roundabout, Winsford.


Work starts from the evening of Sunday 29 July and will take five to six weeks. The repairs will involve lane closures with diversions and overnight road closures between 8pm and 5.30am.

Details of the scheme

The scheme involves re-waterproofing the concrete bridge deck, replacing the bridge expansion joints and resurfacing.

It is essential to carry out this work before the winter months or more serious deterioration of the road surface could occur.

During the period of the entire works, access over the south side bridge will be closed for approximately six nights in total with a signed diversion using Road One or the A533, A556, A49 and A54 back to Winsford. Signs will be placed by the bridge giving the dates of overnight closures.

The work will be done in two phases.

Phase one

The outside of the roundabout on the westbound bridge will be closed to traffic and also the A54 between the railway station roundabout and Wharton roundabout.


Traffic will be diverted up Road One and the A5018 to Wharton roundabout. Local traffic can still use Station Road for access. This first phase will last approximately three weeks.

Phase two

The inside of the roundabout will be closed with traffic.


Traffic is diverted up the A54 to the roundabout by the railway station and back down to Wharton roundabout.
