Pothole-ridden Park Road in Nantwich is to close for almost a week for major resurfacing work.

The A530 road to Whitchurch will be closed from the junction with Wellington Road to the junction with Shrewbridge Road.

Cheshire East Council highways say the closure- between May 3 and May 9 – is necessary for the works to be carried out effectively.

Hundreds of drivers will be effected and face lengthy diversions.

An alternative route will be sign-posted via Shrewbridge Road, Audlem Road A529/A530, Audlem Road A529, Baddington Lane A530, Broad Lane A529, Cheshire Street A529, Cock Lane, Crewe Road B5071, Path Audlem Road to Mill Way, Shrewbridge Road A530, Shropshire Street A525, Whitchurch Road A530, Whitchurch Road A525.

A Cheshire East Council location map is available here

Pedestrian access to properties in the closure zone will be maintained.

Vehicular access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and residents where possible.

Cheshire East says it is anticipated the works will take place from Tuesday May 3 to Monday May 9 between 9.30am and 3.30pm (not including weekends).

    Don’t forget to vote or better still start your own revolution using non violent civil disobedience tactics, that might get their attention because to be honest chief non of them are interested, especially that facile smug self serving berk Timpson ( Google origin of berk for my full opinion)

    “Pothole ridden”?! Try driving down many on the rural roads in the area! Hollins Green Rd in particular! It’s disgusting the state of the rural roads, and a kick in the teeth when this – not too bad (in comparison) – road gets resurfaced AGAIN just because it’s in town! The urban/rural divide widens again by the width of some tarmac…

    Already spoken to Cheshire east and Nantwich councils, regarding vehicles speeding through Brine Baths estate , using Brine road , Newbold way, and Stonebridge road to get round roadworks .
    This is already a regular rat run for traffic to miss the A530 junction on Wellington road, but this will now involve heavy goods vehicles, which will use this route rather than drive 10 miles out of there way.
