Warrington Borough Council, together with Warrington & Co. and Cheshire & Warrington LEP, are investing in a long-term transport infrastructure plan to help reduce traffic congestion in the town centre and encourage continued growth and investment across the town.
The Centre Park Link project is the first part of this plan. It would see the creation of a southbound link from Wilson Patten Street to Chester Road via a new road bridge over the River Mersey. One of the key benefits of this would be to reduce traffic demands around Bridgefoot Gyratory and start to unlock the potential of Warrington’s considerable waterfront area.
We’ll be undertaking a series of public engagement activities to ensure that you get the opportunity to learn more about the proposals and have your say.
This project is part of the Warrington’s wider regeneration plans and growth ambitions – including long term aspirations for a new road connecting the A56 Chester Road and A57 Sankey Way, which will be consulted on separately. Further details of this are set out in its framework for growth Warrington Means Business.
