A50 Holmes Chapel road closure
Cheshire East Council’s highways team has been working on the A50 this week, investigating a carriageway collapse in Toft near the junction with Middlewich Road.
The collapse is significant and it is major repair work is required.
Due to the location of the collapse, in the centre of the road, the route remained closed throughout on Tuesday and Wednesday, and overnight into Thursday.
An temporary diversion is in place along Seven Sisters Lane, Chelford Road (A537) and Adams Hill, operating in both directions.
The council announced in an update today (Thursday 16th March 2017) that the road will partially reopen late this afternoon with temporary traffic lights being put in place.
The advice to road users is to plan their journey and avoid the area if possible. Temporary road diversions remain in place while repairs are undertaken to the damaged drainage system.
The road is due to reopen fully on Sunday.
