The countdown is underway for the start of work to resurface Hoole Roundabout and a section of Hoole Road in Chester.

Work begins on the A41 and A56 Hoole roundabout on August 19 and it will be closed to all traffic that night between 6.30pm and 6.30am.

For the next four nights resurfacing work will be carried out from 6.30pm to the early hours of the morning on the Hoole roundabout however it will be reopened during the day.

Traffic will be diverted along the A5116 Liverpool Road and A51 Vicars Cross Road and signs will be erected on site to direct drivers.

That work finishes on August 23 and then major resurfacing at the top of A56 Hoole Road begins on Tuesday August 27.

A 300 metre section between the roundabout and Mannings Lane South will be closed to all traffic for four days until Friday August 30. The resurfacing work will be carried out during the day.

Councillor Lynn Riley, Executive Member for Localities, said: “These two major schemes, once complete, I am sure will be welcomed by drivers.

“Both the roundabout and Hoole Road are major gateways into the city and both will be greatly improved.

“We have listened to residents and drivers and know that the resurfacing at both sites is important to them and they have wanted the work to be carried out for some time.

 “We apologise for the closures and the disruption this will cause and please bear with us because this work must be carried out.

“Unfortunately late night repairs on the roundabout must be undertaken because it is so busy during the day.

“The long section of Hoole Road must be closed because deep repairs to the road surface have to be carried out.”
