Bridge repairs - Park Lane, Congleton 

As part of the ongoing structural rehabilitation programme, essential works are required to re-waterproof the bridge deck over the canal and railway on Park Lane, Congleton outside the railway station.

In order for the work to take place safely a series of single lane closures, controlled by temporary traffic lights, are required and will be in place between 17 October and 22 December 2017.  

We understand that there is no right time to undertake works on such a busy road as Park Lane, but this has been carefully planned to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and members of the travelling public.

Work will only take place during daylight hours (8:00-18:00) to minimise noise.

What is happening

We are undertaking essential structural repairs to the bridge deck to provide a waterproof layer beneath the surfacing which will maintain the structural integrity for many years to come.

The surfacing will be replaced as part of this work to improve the condition of the highway and footpaths, along with the street lighting columns.

When it is happening

Temporary traffic lights will be in place from 17 October to 22 December between the hours of 8:00 to 18:00 to protect the safety of our workforce.

Plan your journey

Park Lane will remain open, but temporary traffic lights will be in operation from 17 October until 22 December.

Allow extra time for your journey. A map of works can be found on
