Leicester Street Roundabout Public Meeting

Plans to transform Leicester Street roundabout to overcome traffic congestion and improve road safety will be outlined at a Northwich public meeting on Monday 8th July.

Members of the public will be able to study the detailed plans and hear how the new roundabout at the top of Chester Way will support the ambitious new town centre development plans which are creating jobs and providing exciting new leisure and retail facilities.

The meeting will be at Northwich Town Council offices in Church Road on Monday 8th July from 6-7pm.

Introducing the plans will be an independent expert on roundabout designs, John Nightingale, who is director of Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) and senior vice president of the Institute of Engineers.

Attending the meeting will be Councillor Lynn Riley, Executive Member for Localities, and the new chairman of the Weaver Valley Partnership, David Watson.

Councillor Riley, urging members of the public to attend the Monday’s meeting, commented: “The work that has already started in the town centre on the new Waitrose store, Memorial Court leisure complex and very soon on the Barons Quay development is bringing jobs and opportunities for residents and businesses.

“The plans will transform the lifestyle, health and wealth of residents ending the decline of two decades largely caused by the mining subsidence issues which have now been resolved.

“The Leicester Street roundabout and other work being done are fundamental to the success of the regeneration, the foundation stones for Northwich’s bright future. I would ask people to be patient during the construction period and keep their eyes on the prize as we build an affluent Northwich for all, especially for the children of today and the future”.
