Crewe Green Roundabout

Planning application

The planning application for the development of Crewe Green Roundabout was submitted to the planning board on the 16 June, on 27 September we received confirmation that the application had been successful.

Work on the construction of the roundabout will begin in January 2018 and is expected to take 9 months, with the roundabout open to traffic in late September 2018. Some final landscape works will take place after opening. Prior to this between October 2017 and December 2017, some advance works will be completed.

We will be providing updates on the scheme throughout the construction phases through this website and Cheshire East Councils social media sites. If you have any further queries regarding the scheme please email: crewegreenroundabout@cheshireeast.gov.uk

Background

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.

Consultation

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.
