Northwich motorists advised of junction upgrade works to begin in New Year

Construction begins in the New Year on the next phase of the project to implement Northwich’s permanent gyratory scheme.

The work, which begins on Monday (January 6), will involve upgrading the junction between Castle Street and Chester Way.

The existing temporary system will be converted into a permanent road layout with new traffic signals between Castle Street and Chester Way.

In addition, the zebra crossing near to Town Bridge will be upgraded to a controlled crossing and the surrounding roads will be resurfaced.

Temporary traffic signals will be in operation for the majority of the works which are expected to take approximately 12 weeks to complete.

The main resurfacing works will take place in the evening under road closures which will be advertised nearer to the time.

Councillor Lynn Riley, Executive Member for Localities, said: “I would like to thank local residents and motorists for their patience during the recent works to improve the junction at Chester Way and London Road.

“This next junction upgrade, at Castle Street and Chester Way, is a major project and there is likely to be some disruption during construction.

“However, I can assure road users that we will do our best to mitigate delays while maintaining pedestrian access.”
