Plans for new roundabout revealed

First published in News

DESIGNS for a new roundabout in Northwich are being revealed for residents to view and have their say.

Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) has plans to increase the size of the Leicester Street and Chesterway roundabout.

The significant changes are designed to work hand in hand with the regeneration of Northwich and help the roundabout cope with future levels of traffic.

A number of controlled pedestrian crossings will be installed to ensure safe access for those visiting nearby businesses and extensive nearby parking will also be provided.

Clr Lynn Riley, CWAC’s executive member for localities, said: “As a result of regeneration plans the town is benefitting from a number of developments and we expect this to continue in the future.

“As part of this we need to ensure that the highways network can cope with predicted increased levels of traffic and pedestrians can continue to navigate our roads safely.

“Our proposals will see Leicester Street roundabout become much more accessible for pedestrians and includes extensive nearby parking.

“I would encourage anyone looking to find out more to head to one the exhibitions or visit our website.”

The proposals, including detailed maps and design information, will be on show at a number of exhibitions.

These include:

• Council Offices at Wyvern House, The Drumber, Winsford, CW7 1AH between 8.30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday

• Northwich Library, Witton Street, Northwich, CW9 5DR between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Wednesday, 9am to 7pm Thursday to Friday and between 9am and 1pm on Saturdays

• Northwich Customer Service Centre, 1 The Arcade, Northwich, CW9 5AS between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

• The documents will also be available from December 11on the council’s website cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk.

Looks really good - the current roundabout is dangerous - I have had many near misses with drivers using the wrong lane to go from Chesterway to Manchester road.

The new plans show a lot more parking spaces than the plans revealed in June.

Nicksey - yes - it does look different doesn't it? It looks like there are more push button crossings as well as the parking. The council say in the report that they have had meetings with the local businesses so maybe things have changed because of that.
