Repairs to hole on A41 in Christleton near completion

5 October 2017

Repairs to a hole on the A41 in Christleton, Chester are moving into the final stages and an overnight road closure will be needed to allow machinery onto the site.

On Sunday, 8 October the A41 will be closed from 7pm until 5am to allow the repairs to progress.

The road closure points will be from Durban Avenue to Bridge Drive.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Councillor Karen Shore said: “We had hoped the repairs would be completed without the need for a road closure but the machinery required is just too large for the next part of the repairs to take place safely.  If all goes smoothly the closure will only be needed for one night.

“The works are generally progressing well and we hope to complete the repairs on or around Saturday 14 October.

“The works have been complex as lots of services are under the surface, as well as water and gas mains, there are power and telecommunication cables, which had to be supported while the work takes place.“

“Thank you to local residents and businesses for your patience and co-operation during these repairs, it is greatly appreciated.”
