Ma­jor road works close route for week

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A SEVEN-MILE stretch of the A34 Con­gle­ton Road is to be com­pletely shut for seven nights for high­ways im­prove­ments.

Cheshire East Coun­cil’s high­ways team will resur­face and re­place road mark­ings be­tween 7.30pm and 5am from Mon­day, Septem­ber 26, to Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 5. The road will be open as usual over the week­end (Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 1, and Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 2).

The road will be closed be­tween the A536 Manch­ester Road at Con­gle­ton am­bu­lance sta­tion and the A537 Monks Heath cross­roads.

The works also in­clude gully clean­ing and grass cut­ting.

A di­ver­sion will be in place and will be sign­posted via the A536 Macclesfield Road, B5088 Ox­ford Road, A537 Ch­ester Road/Chelford Road and Monks Heath cross­roads.

Coun David Brown, cab­i­net mem­ber for high­ways and in­fra­struc­ture, said: “This is clearly one of our key routes, so we were very keen to en­sure that we got the best value for tax­pay­ers by co­or­di­nat­ing a se­ries of works, while only hav­ing the road closed on one oc­ca­sion.”

Lo­cal busi­nesses will re­main open as usual.
