 Major ongoing works

A533 Central Expressway at Lodge Lane Interchange

Work will be taking place at the interchange just after the exit for the Shopping Centre, and is expected to complete in Spring 2015. The work involves closures to lane 1 southbound, and the hard shoulder for main site access work and trial hole digging.

Weston Point Expressway / M56 Junction 12

Work is now taking place between 7pm and 5am Monday to Friday, and between 7am and 5pm Saturday and Sunday, along the Weston Point Expressway heading towards the M56 Junction 12. The road is down to one lane southbound as it approaches the roundabout / junction. Work is expected to continue until summer 2015.

Bridgewater / Daresbury / Central Expressway interchange

Work is underway here to create a new double roundabout which will provide a link between the Central Expressway and the Daresbury and Bridgewater Expressways when the new bridge opens. Expect diversions and disruption in this location until the new bridge opens in 2017.

Ditton Roundabout

Work is underway here to convert Ditton Roundabout to a junction with traffic lights. A number of roads in the area will be closed at different times until the new bridge opens in 2017. Expect diversions and disruption in this area as a result.
