Burtonwood and Kingswood Road - junction improvements

We're proposing improvements to the junction of Burtonwood and Kingswood Road to improve the current issues with congestion, particularly at peak times.

To help reduce queuing, improve journey times and accommodate traffic growth as Omega and Lingley Mere continue to grow, we're proposing to widen Burtonwood Road (southbound) as well as improving walking and cycling facilities.  

We expect to start these improvements in Spring 2018 to tie in with the final phases of the M62 Junction 8 works and finish in Summer 2018.

To further explain these proposals we'll be holding public exhibitions on the following dates and times:

  • Friday 6 October  - Kingswood Community Centre, Kingswood Rd. WA5 7XQ between 4-8pm.   
  • Saturday 7 October  - Kingswood Community Centre, Kingswood Rd. WA5 7XQ between 10am-1pm.
  • Thursday 12 October - Burtonwood Library, Chapel Lane WA5 4PS between 3-7pm.

Our officers will be around to answer any questions you might have. To give you further background we've also produced a list of FAQs [pdf].

In addition to the above proposals, a number of other junction improvements are proposed in the West Warrington area.  These improvements are at various stages of development and are subject to detailed design and consultation at a later date. This plan [PNG] shows the location of potential future improvements and further public consultation will be undertaken as these schemes develop.

To comment on our proposals please use our online feedback form. The consultation will remain open until 5 November 2017.
