A56 Chester Road – Active Travel Scheme
Roadworks final update
Work is now at completion stage on the active travel improvement scheme between Helsby High School and Frodsham. The surface dressing has now been completed and the road markings replaced, however, sweeping of the loose chippings will be ongoing as and when required but these should be mainly bedded in now. Please note that the surface dressing was not part of the scheme but it made sense to delay our finishing works until this was completed.
The finishing of the grass seeding to the verges (which has a mix of grass areas and wildflower areas along the route) will be completed when we have imminent rain forecast.
As previously mentioned, there will be programmed works to plant bulbs along the route which is expected to be arranged for September/October – bulb planting time. Also, please note that as the works have progressed, the existing footway has been cleared and we have noted areas that require some general maintenance work. We will aim to carry these repairs out during school holidays where possible to cause minimal disruption.
We would like to take this opportunity in our last update to thank everyone for their patience and co-operation during our works along this corridor. If you have any queries regarding the scheme please do not hesitate to contact us on 0300 123 7 036.
