Cheshire news Roadworks and closures as Cheshire prepares to ease out of lockdown MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - If you're returning to work for the first time since the start of lockdown make sure you don't get caught out by these roadworks
Breaking News ! A number of road closures and works will be taking place across Cheshire this month. As the county prepares to ease out of lockdown a number of businesses will be back up and running as the government try to get the economy moving again. It's been more than three months since the lockdown was enforced amid the coronavirus pandemic. Roads were a lot quieter as the nation adhered to the rules of staying at home and then later staying alert to control the spread of the virus. Now, on July 4 some of the lockdown measures will be eased which will potentially mean more traffic across the region's travel networks. A number of roadworks and closures will still be going ahead as planned. Disruption is always aimed to be kept to the minimum by councils and those carrying out the works - but some delays and diversions are inevitable. In order to plan your journey ahead, below is a handy guide to some the works and closures taking place on Cheshire's motorways and roads across July. Whilst every effort has been made to include all roadworks and closures on the below list, some may be missing. If you recognise a road closure or are aware of roadworks in place on a road we have not mentioned, then please comment below.
