There is extremely slow traffic in Chester tonight (Tuesday January 5) thanks to temporary road closures that are set to last for the rest of the week.

Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) have closed Lache Lane for resurfacing for a maximum of five days from today and nearby Circular Drive will also be closed from January 11-15.

CWaC's website said the roadworks are being carried out to enable carriageway resurfacing works.

Traffic will be very slow around this area, so drivers are advised to seek alternative routes, such as Cliveden Road and the Overleigh Roundabout A483.
