A54 Buxton Road, Congleton – Resurfacing

We are carrying out road resurfacing along Buxton Road in Congleton to improve the condition of the road. The works will take approximately 18 consecutive days to complete and commenced on 10 August 21.

We understand there is no right time to undertake this work however, the scheme has been carefully planned during school holidays to minimise disruption to local residents, businesses and members of the travelling public.

The work will take place in phased sections as detailed below:

Phased sections
Phase 2 From Havanah Lane To Buxton Old Rd (South Jnc) Works complete
Phase 3 From St. Johns to Bridge Row Works ongoing until 20 Aug
Phase 4 From Bridge Row to RAB Saturday 21 - Saturday 28 Aug

Entry points will vary during each phase. The road will be closed with no through route in the closure points during the below hours:

  • Weekdays, 08:00 – 17:00
  • Weekends, 08:00 – 18:00

Buxton Road will reopen on Sunday 29 August and Monday 30 August to allow for bank holiday travel.

The road will then be closed again between 08:00 and 17:00 from Tuesday 31 August to Friday 03 September from the Church House Inn to Middle Lane, Buglawton, to finalise resurfacing works. Lining works will then be completed on Sunday 05 and Monday 06 September between the hours of 19:00 – 23:00.

Under current Health & Safety legislation and for the safety of our workforce and members of the public, it will be necessary for a road closure to be in place during the works.
