road works 570 x 310

Extension of road safety works in Wilmslow Road/London Road, Alderley Edge.

Cheshire East Council is undertaking road safety improvements on Wilmslow Road/ London Road, in Alderley Edge. 

The bridge is currently closed at all times from the junction of Heyes Lane to Ryleys Lane, while the work takes place.

The road was due to reopen on the 19 August. However, during the work, a cavity was discovered under a section of the footpath. Investigations are ongoing, with the assistance of relevant utility companies, to determine the cause. 

The road will not reopen until it is safe to do so. Additional resources have been assigned and the highways team’s working hours extended to complete investigations as swiftly as possible.

Members of the public are advised to plan their journey using the signed diversion routes. Businesses remain open as usual.

Cheshire East’s highways team will be monitoring the work as it progresses and any further updates will be tweeted from the @CECHighways Twitter account. We thank motorists, businesses and residents for their patience during this necessary work.
