Meet the Contractor event
We will be holding a ‘Meet the Contractor’ event on:
Thursday 18 January 2pm to 8pm at The Hunters Lodge, Sydney Road, Crewe, CW1 5LU
Please come along and find out more information on our plans for construction, the programme and phasing of the work and how we will keep traffic moving. It is an opportunity to meet the Crewe Green Roundabout Construction Team and to discuss any concerns or queries you may have about the works.
Crewe Green Roundabout construction
The main construction works for the scheme will begin in late January 2018, with the new roundabout fully opened to traffic in October 2018. Landscaping of the site will take place during November 2018.
The construction work will take place in 3 phases:
- Phase 1: end of January to April 2018 (12 weeks)
- Phase 2: April/May to July 2018 (12 weeks)
- Phase 3: July/August to November 2018 (16 weeks)
The existing roundabout will remain open with a single lane of traffic operating throughout the construction phase. Controlled pedestrian and cycle crossings will be maintained throughout the works.
During Phase 2 the link between the roundabout and Hungerford Road and Sydney Road will be closed to allow the construction of the northern section of the new roundabout layout. We will maintain a single lane of traffic under traffic light control between Hungerford Road and Sydney Road for residents use only. There will be a signposted diversion route for other road users. The existing traffic lights on Crewe Green Roundabout will also be switched off within this phase.
Further information and dates of closures will be updated on this website in due course and on www.roadworks.org
We will be providing regular updates on the scheme throughout the construction phases through this website and Cheshire East Councils social media sites.

Crewe Green Roundabout acts as the principal route into Crewe from the north, east, and south for both local traffic and strategic network traffic originating from the M6 junctions 16 and 17.
The roundabout experiences high volumes of traffic throughout the day but experiences severe congestion during peak commuting times, resulting in delays and unreliable journey times.
The improvements at Crewe Green Roundabout will ease congestion at the junction, improve local and strategic access issues and provide increased road network capacity to support Cheshire East Councils Local Plan up to 2030. They will also unlock growth potential and improve access to a number of development sites in and around Crewe.
We held two consultation and engagement exercises to gather feedback. The first was held in summer 2016 and presented four options for improving the roundabout. The second presented the preferred scheme and requested feedback. Both reports can be found below.
