Major commuter route in Crewe to be partially closed February 16th – 20th

Crewe Station MapA stretch of Nantwich Road by Crewe railway station will be closed during February 2015 half term to allow Scottish Power Energy Networks to carry out essential works.

The work is necessary to divert some electricity cables under the Crewe Arms roundabout, which are currently in a very poor condition.

Traffic moving along Nantwich Road, out of Crewe, towards the roundabout, will be diverted for the full five days.

Vehicles heading towards Nantwich, from the Crewe Arms roundabout, will be diverted overnight from 7pm until 6am for the same period.

Road Closed signDiversions are along Mill Street, Edleston Road, Vernon Way, Earle Street and Macon Way.

There is a separate diversion for heavy goods vehicles, due to the low bridges on Gresty Road and Mill Street, which will be clearly marked.

Taxis and emergency vehicles will still be able to access the railway station. The Council requested the work take place during half term to keep disruption to a minimum.

Virgin Trains (Crewe Rail Station), Tesco Express, Crewe Arms Hotel, Crewe Fire Station and the businesses directly affected by the closure have been contacted about the work.
