The £11m replacement Sydney Road Bridge over the West Coast Mainline (rail) in Crewe reopened to traffic during the last weekend of June.

Once all work is completed, the bridge will also include a shared cycleway and footway over the bridge, a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing and an improved cycle path along Sydney Road.

The roadworks have removed a major traffic ‘pinch point’ in the town, on a route serving Leighton Hospital and the Bentley Motors factory.

Lime Tree Avenue has also reopened, as it was closed during the construction work to stop motorists using the narrow residential roads as a cut through.
