Gas main replacement works begin in Hoole

22 February 2021

A gas mains replacement scheme will begin in Hoole this week at the junction of Hamilton Street and Newton Lane.

Hamilton Street will be closed to through traffic from Monday 22 February and the work will then progress on to Hoole Road and Newton Lane from 1 March.

From Monday 1 March as well as the closure of Hamilton Street, there will be one-way traffic on Newton Lane (between Hoole Road and Shavington Avenue) with traffic being able to travel from Hoole Road past the works.  Hoole Road will be under two-way traffic lights, these arrangements will be in place until the end of the works which are expected to last four weeks in total.

A diversion is in place.
