Woore Road, Audlem – resurfacing

We are carrying out road resurfacing along Woore Road, Audlem between the Canal Bridge and Bath Lane to improve the condition of the road. The works will take approximately 7 consecutive days to complete, commencing on 25 October 2021.

Ahead of the works, three-way and two-way temporary traffic singals will be placed along Woore Road, Audlem to allow for civils works to take place which includes general maintenance and kerbing. 

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:

Road works phases
 PhaseLocation  Dates
Phase 1 From Green Lane to Cheshire Street Junction 25 – 26 October
Phase 2 From Cheshire Street Junction to Bath Lane  27 – 30 October
Phase 3 All sections of Woore Road and Shropshire Street  Sunday 31 October


Entry points will vary during each phase between 08:00 to 17:00.

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.
