Roadworks and travel disruption
Our Twitter feed will cover emergency or unplanned disruption that we are aware of.
You can view current and upcoming planned roadworks, road closures and other traffic disruptions in Cheshire East on the One Network web site.
You can search by street name and for roadworks today and in the next 2 weeks.
Zoom into the map on the One Network site to see the detail.
You will need to register an account if you are searching for works due to start 15 or more days ahead of your search date.
Click on ‘data layers’ to change filters for information such as live traffic, road closures and diversions. You can see roadworks planned for a future date by selecting up to twelve months ahead using the options box on the map.
How we let you know about upcoming roadworks
You can find out about planned roadworks through the One Network site.
We tell all road users about planned closure dates and times by using static message boards, variable message boards and information posted on our website. We also contact residents and business that fall within the closure to let them know as much information as possible.
We cannot give advanced notice for unplanned work such as emergencies.
How we decide when to carry out work
We try to keep disruption to a minimum when planning work. We think about the location and type of work when deciding when is best to do repairs. We try to leave repairs to major roads until the school holidays if possible.
How to gain access through a road closure
We will allow access to residents and businesses whose properties fall within the limits of a road closure as long as it is safe. You may sometimes have to wait or use the diversion route instead.
If you need access through a closure you will be asked to say where you are going. We use ‘business as usual’ signs where possible.
We tell the emergency services about all closures on our network, and we allow them access.
We use our permit scheme conditions to limit the time of day works are carried out, or to extend the time to reduce the length of the closure.
How we decide on diversion routes
We choose the route as part of our strategic traffic management plan. We must use roads of a similar designated level or higher to allow all road users to travel along the signed diversion. For example, we must divert traffic from an A class road onto other A class roads, but we can divert B class roads onto both A and B class roads. This can sometimes result in lengthy diversions.
