Planned to become operational on 29th January 2012

The experimental one way road system for Northwich has been given approval and is planned to become operational on Sunday January 29th 2012.  The 18 month trial will be fully reviewed and if successful will be made permanent.

Councillor Lynn Riley, Executive Member for Community and Environment said: “It is hoped that this scheme will play a vital role as part of the future regeneration of Northwich town centre and will help reduce congestion around the town.

“This experiment will be carefully monitored and ‘tweaks’ may be made as it progresses.

“Variable message signs will be erected in early January on all approaches to Northwich to give motorists plenty of advanced warning of the road layout changes.”
