Plans for a new link road to ease traffic congestion in Warrington move forward with the launch of a public consultation.
Warrington Borough Council’s Transport for Warrington team intends to recommend that a revised red route provides the best solution to achieve the objectives of the project. In response to feedback, however, there has been a substantial redesign of the route which will now impact on fewer properties than initially expected.
The route links the A56 Chester Road with the A57 in Great Sankey and is expected to deliver much needed congestion relief for Warrington town centre. This route would provide a new high level crossing over the Manchester Ship Canal, reducing inconvenience caused by the existing swing bridges.
Residents along the proposed route are being informed of this recommendation via letter and the proposed route will be the subject of a further round of public consultation, starting immediately.
