Roads resurfacing works

Council's road repairs programme moves up a gear

28 July 2021

Cheshire East Council’s road repairs are moving up a gear this summer with a programme of resurfacing works now under way and continuing over the coming weeks.

The council’s road improvement programme, which includes carriageway patching, surface treatment and full resurfacing, began on 16 July and is planned for the summer, when the temperatures are higher and the weather is normally drier. 

Our approach to maintenance is to focus on roads which see the greatest use and risk, to enable the money to be used in the most effective way. 

Works will be done at various locations across the borough and, where possible, will be coordinated to reduce the impact on road users.

The investment in the network will see 26km (16 miles) of roads resurfaced or treated this year out of a total road network in the borough of 1,677 miles. 

The programme of works is prioritised in line with a defined scoring criteria, which can be found on the council's website

A Cheshire East Council spokesperson said: “The programme will improve some of the key sections of highway network and this will naturally cause some disruption and inconvenience, for which we apologise in advance. We would ask drivers to be patient and please plan ahead.”
