Cheshire West and Chester Council is at present putting in place a new diversion route because the A54 near the police headquarters in Winsford has remained closed.

United Utilities is dealing with a major water main burst and hope to open the road later this week.

The council has been working with United Utilities and council engineers aim by the rush hour tonight (Monday, September 29) to have in place a wider diversion using the A556 and A533 which can be used by weekday traffic.

Once the diversion is in place Delamere Street will then act as a nearby division route for local drivers.
