Changes to traffic flow in Chester
Cheshire West and Chester West Council has stated that, as public realm improvements on Frodsham Street in Chester move into their final stages, changes to traffic flow and access are required in the area.
From today - Monday 23rd January 2017 - Frodsham Street will be closed to traffic between the Claire House Hospice shop and the former Wolfies.
Access will be maintained up to the mini-roundabout near the Iceland supermarket.
While the road is closed, access to Frodsham Street and the Kaleyards car park will be via a diversion route using Northgate Street, St Werburgh Street, Eastgate Street and Foregate Street.
A signed diversion route will be in place from the Hoole Way Roundabout.
The temporary road connecting Eastgate Street to Foregate Street will remain open to allow access to the southern end of Frodsham Street.
The southern section of Frodsham Street will operate with two way traffic.
The exit to Kaleyards car park will also be closed while paving work is carried out. Traffic leaving the car park will use the entrance near Poundland, then via Foregate Street.
The council’s cabinet member for environment, Cllr Karen Shore said: “We anticipate the work will take around two weeks to complete around the car park exit and it will be re-opened as soon as work in this location is finished.
“Work has been delayed on Frodsham Street following supplier problems but we are confident that if things continue to run smoothly the improvements will be completed in early March.
“We’re working with businesses to help them co-ordinate their deliveries during the changes and would like to thank everyone for their support and patience with these improvements.”
Regular updates about progress on the work are available on the council’s website (www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/frodshamstreet) and on social media.
