Expressway Closure

Back home  /  News  /  Expressway Closure

Update 2nd August 2023:
As there have been a few reports of HGV's ignoring the weight limit signs and the damage that has occurred to Delph Lane due to this, the decision was made to close Delph Lane on Monday 31st July to all but residents and refuse collections. Halton Borough Council have requested police support in enforcement of the weight limits on other routes and have requested that any HGV's observed using these routes should be reported to the police with the registration plate and any other relevant information so they can be identified and action taken. Please report all incidences to  John Gill  (HBC),  Corporate Complaints  (HBC), and  Peter Crosbie  (Cheshire Police).

21st July 2023:
The A558 Daresbury expressway will be closed from the junction of Innovation Way to the roundabout of Blackheath Lane and Pitts Heath Lane to allow for Redrow to carry out work on their new housing development.
The closure will commence on the 26th July and will reopen 26th October with a temporary opening from August 21st-30th for the Creamfields festival.
A diversion route will go along the A56 Chester Road to the A533 Southern Expressway then along the A533 Central Expressway and back on to the A558 Daresbury Expressway. Map of diversion route. All diversion signage will be marked with a circle symbol.
At the same time, Keckwick Lane will also be closed for the same works, however for a much longer period. Redrow/Cox are preparing a plan and risk assessment to see if it is viable to allow pedestrians to walk through the site from Keckwick Lane to Sci Tech in a cordoned-off section and also an alternative walking route should this not be safe but this has not been confirmed as of yet.

The parish council are aware that there may be some some issues caused by these closures and are providing a platform to report any issues that the public may observe. This could include anything from HGV's ignoring or missing the weight limit signs heading to Moore to inconsiderate parking to walk up to Daresbury Science Park.

Please report these issues on the form below, including a description of the location and any photographic evidence if possible and these will be passed on to the relevant people.
