Drivers across Crewe and Nantwich are being warned of major delays from January 4 due to repair works to a railway bridge.

Network Rail will begin a major repair project on A532 Hungerford Road bridge in Crewe.

It is undergoing restrengthening to extend its life as part of investment in the Crewe-to-Manchester railway line.

It will mean a temporary one-way system introduced on the bridge between Monday January 4 and Friday June 10.

Vehicle access into Crewe town centre will be maintained for most of the time.

But drivers travelling in and out of the town are warned to expect long delays.

The temporary one-way system will allow vehicles entering Crewe from Macon Way and Hungerford Road to cross the bridge.

But all drivers, including HGVs, will have to leave Crewe via Vernon Way, Edleston Road and Nantwich Road.

Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Network Rail has positioned advanced warning signs to notify road users of the works.

Residents and local businesses have been notified by letter but businesses are not expected to be affected.
