GATEWAY roads into Ellesmere Port will undergo £100,000 of resurfacing work.
The M53 junction 9 roundabout and Oil Sites Road adjacent to the Boat Museum in Ellesmere Port will have work carried out over five nights starting at 9pm on Monday (July 9).
The on and off slip roads at Junction 9 of the M53 will be closed at night while the work is under way.
The junction will be re-opened every morning by 7am, but it may be necessary for temporary traffic management measures to remain in place during the day.
Signed local diversion routes to and from the M53 will be in place when the road closures are in operation, with a separate diversion route for heavy vehicles to avoid residential areas.
Essential access to homes and businesses will be maintained at all times, but traffic accessing and leaving the M53 will not be permitted during the night time closures for the duration of the works.
Rossmore councillor and mayor of Ellesmere Port Pat Merrick said: “As a gateway to the town it is important that this area is as smart and welcoming as possible and the present condition of the carriageway is poor and in need of resurfacing.
“In order to undertake these works safely, at this very busy junction, it will be necessary to close all of the motorway slip roads and this can only be done during night time hours so as to comply with Highway Agency requirements and to minimise the disruption to its many road users.”
