THOUSANDS of motorists on the outskirts of Ellesmere Port are being directed to a massage parlour by Highways Agency road signs.
Diversions set-up at major roadworks in Shotwick are alerting drivers that they can gain access to a business called The Bungalow.
The business, which offers customers various services in its pink room and red room, has been in operation for 16 years and is just yards from the busy A550 on the Cheshire-Flintshire border.
Owner of The Bungalow, Bonnie Westgarth applied to Chester City Council in September this year to change the use of the building to a massage parlour.
Now, due to the £58m Deeside Park Junction Improvement project, thousands of road users will be able to find it.
Highways Agency spokeswoman Barbara Phillips said: “As part of the Deeside junction improvement works, changes are being made to the access of this business.
“The black and yellow signs have been put up to alert individuals using the business that they can still gain access.
“As far as we are aware, the business is a massage parlour but if someone came to us to say it was an illegal business then the signs would come down.”
The roadworks, which are designed to ease congestion at the key gateway to England and Wales, are expected to be completed by December.
The temporary signs advertising The Bungalow will be removed once the works have been completed.
Staff at The Bungalow have declined to comment.
