Programme of highway works 2019/20

We want to keep our road users safe to do this we will ensure the maintenance of our highway network.

We set out what we want to achieve in our Local Transport Plan 2011-26, the Local Plan and other relevant policies and strategies. We continue to work to meet our objectives in these plans.

The summary of the funding for this year’s programme of highway works is provided in our Highway Capital Maintenance Funding Summary (PDF, 288KB.)

We prioritise the capital funded programmes using a range of data and evidence.

Road closures

Cheshire East Highways will notify residents, businesses and stakeholders affected by any road closure by carrying out a letter drop before works commence. This is usually carried out 7-10 days before works commence but can change based on scheme type. The letter will explain the works, when it will happen and what it will mean to affected properties.

Advance information boards will be placed on the highway at the scheme site as well to advise road users of the works to come.

All works are weather dependent and unforeseen circumstances can arise. We will update the advance information boards and roadworks map if the date for the works changes.

When required, road closures are necessary to protect the safety of both members of the public and our workforce whilst we complete the work. Road closures are generally off peak between 9.30am and 3.30pm however, road locations and the type of work may mean that these times vary. Occasionally during complex schemes, a full closure is required 24 hours a day.

The programme of improvements and maintenance is shown on our roadworks map page.
