Notice is hereby given pursuant to the provisions of Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 that the Cheshire West and Chester Borough Council intends to make an Order the effect of which will be to temporarily prohibit/restrict traffic on the following lengths of road in Northwich to enable resurfacing works to be carried out by AE Yates:
  • Leicester Street - From Leicester Street Roundabout to Venables Road
  • New Warrington Road - From Leicester Street Roundabout to a point approximately 100m North of Wade Brook

  • Westbound carriageway - From its junction with Leicester Street Roundabout to its junction with Kingsway.
  • Station Road - From its junction with Old Warrington Road to its junction with Chester Way.
Closures are currently programmed for night working and will be in place in various combinations between the 15 August and the 5 September. Works will be completed under a number of different phases dictating that different roads will be closed to through traffic at different times. Please note that all resurfacing works and closures are weather dependant.

Nothing in the Order shall prevent driving upon the said lengths of road of any vehicle which is being used for the conveyance of persons goods or merchandise to or from any premises situate on or adjacent to the lengths of road or in connection with agriculture building construction works of repair and the like or use in an emergency of vehicles for fire brigade ambulance or police purposes. A through route will
not always be available and any vehicles not requiring access to properties on the length of road should use the alternative routes.

The Order will come into force on 15 August 2016 and will continue in force for a period not exceeding eighteen months or until the works which it is proposed to carry out have been completed whichever is the earlier. It is anticipated that the works will take approximately three weeks to complete.


Alternative routes for through traffic

  • Traffic should proceed via the signed diversion routes in place for each phase of works.
