Warrington Borough Council has approved the delivery of a £5.23 million project set to reduce congestion and improve road safety in the east of the town.
The ambitious Warrington East phase 1 project will improve three of the junctions along Birchwood Way to combat the long-standing traffic congestion issues, while helping to sustain growth and attract investment.
The scheme, which is set to commence in July, has been tipped to dramatically reduce journey times for travellers and will improve accessibility for pedestrians, as well as cyclists.
Proposals include improvements to Oakwood Gate, a conversion of the Moss Gate roundabout to signals and the introduction of a bus link at Faraday Street roundabout, which will provide a bus only link to Ordnance Avenue.
The project has come to fruition after the council secured crucial funding as part of the growth deal for the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), along with a contribution from Birchwood Park.
