Update 12 October 2020: Due to previously unforeseen issues the road will now be closed on Saturday 7 November in order to complete the scheme.
Works will be taking place to resurface the road along the A49 Winwick Road Northbound between the roundabout at Cromwell Avenue/Sandy Lane West and the roundabout at M62/Newton Road.
These works will start from Monday 5 October 2020, and will take up to 5 weeks to complete.
The Principal Contractor for this scheme is Tarmac Trading Ltd.
Due to the difficult nature of the works, it will be necessary to close the road, and its side roads, for the resurfacing works, with the road being closed between 7:00pm and 1:00am.
All roads will be reopened to traffic outside these times.
Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and vehicular access will be under the control of the Principal Contractor.
There will be a signed diversion route for the works via Cromwell Avenue, Calver Road, Mill Lane, Watery Lane, Hollins Lane and Newton Road.
Information on changes to bus services and any diversions will be posted at stops prior to the start of the works.
All works are planned for Monday to Friday nights, no works are planned to take place on Saturday or Sunday nights.
Cones, barriers and signs are there for a reason - to protect our workers from danger and to keep the public safe. We urge drivers to pay close attention when driving near roadworks.
