Road closures and diversions are expected in Chester city centre until 24 November as a result of site investigation work being carried out on behalf of the council to confirm the location of services such as gas, electric, water and telecoms as well as ground conditions for necessary infrastructure works.

Work will take place from Monday 14 October to Sunday 24 November, between 6.30am and 7.30pm and will include weekends. It will be carried out in phases and will affect Castle Drive, Nun’s Road, Nicholas Street and St Martin’s Way. The Council apologises for the disruption to journeys during this time.

The city highways team is working closely with the contractors to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and traffic management will be in place. However, due to the location of these works, traffic congestion is inevitable especially at peak periods.

If travelling into the city centre in this period, it is advised to plan ahead and allow extra time. Please consider alternative routes or travel options such as the park-and-ride service or avoid peak times where possible.

The council says that a certain amount of inconvenience is inevitable with work of this type and it would greatly appreciate your patience whilst the works are being undertaken.
