Revised plans for a major new road link scheme in Warrington will be made available for consultation on Monday 4th July, following a positive initial response from the public.
More than 1,000 people gave feedback on Warrington Borough Council’s proposed Centre Park Link scheme at the public consultation undertaken in December last year.
The Council has built that feedback into improved plans which would see a new bridge across the River Mersey to connect Chester Road to the town centre via Slutchers Lane and the introduction of a number of one-way streets around the town centre.
A series of public drop-in sessions are being held across Warrington from Monday 4th July where people can have their say about the proposals and speak with members of the team. Events are being held at Parr Hall, the Village Hotel, St Werburghs Centre, Bank Park pavilion and Golden Square.
People are being asked for their thoughts on key details including a proposed one-way southbound traffic flow on Crosfield Street, a one-way clockwise traffic flow with complementary improvement measures in the town centre and improvements to the existing two-way flow on Slutchers Lane linked to the new River Mersey crossing from Chester Rd.
The council is also interested in views on new junction arrangements on Chester Road and traffic calming proposals for the Gainsborough Road area.
A full and up-to-date event timetable is available at www.centreparklink.co.uk, where you will be able to find out more about the plans and leave feedback online from the 4th July. You can also send your comments to FREEPOST: YOUR SAY CONSULTATION.
The closing date for consultation responses will be Friday 12th August 2016.
