Christmas roadworks embargo for Frodsham

THERE should be no road works to interfere with Christmas shopping and other festivities in Frodsham – barring an emergency!
Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) has arranged a roadworks embargo for the Christmas period to keep festivities running smoothly.
The embargo will cover Chester city centre and all major towns and retail outlets across the borough from noon on Thursday November 21 until 11.59pm on Monday, January 6.
Director of place operations at CWaC Maria Byrne said: “At this time of year we of course see a significant increase in both the number of vehicles and pedestrians in and around our major shopping centres, in the run-up to and through the Christmas and New Year periods.
A roadworks embargo willl help visitors and shoppers access the borough’s wonderful shopping and leisure facilities by keeping traffic running smoothly.
“Our Streetworks team may, of course, need to grant permits for work on the road network during these dates if emergency repairs are needed to ensure the supply of vital utility services to homes and businesses.”
The embargo only applies to the Borough’s road network, however the CWaC’s Highways Service is working with other network operators, including Highways England and Network Rail, to minimise the impact of any proposed works on their own networks, through promoting off-peak and night time working.
In Frodsham, the embargo will cover the A56 High Street/Main Street between Howey Lane and Fluin Lane also Church Street and Fluin Lane to their junctions with Vicarage Road and A56.
