Northwich Guardian: Chesterway roundabout plans to be shown in series of exhibitions Chesterway roundabout plans to be shown in series of exhibitions

A SERIES of public exhibitions are planned for residents to find out more about extensive proposals for a major Northwich roundabout.

A scheme has been drawn up for the Leicester Street and Chesterway roundabout to increase its capacity so it can cope with extra traffic generated by future developments and improve walking and cycling facilities.

The plans are being put forward by Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) and officers will be on hand to answer any questions.

Clr Lynn Riley, executive member for localities, said: “It is vital that the road infrastructure can support the enormous scale of regeneration now coming forward in Northwich.

“This major improvement scheme will help ensure that the town can cope with the traffic generated by these major leisure and retail developments and that pedestrians and cyclists can continue to safely navigate the roads.

“Since before the summer the council has been working with local stakeholders who have helped to shape the proposals for Leicester Street.

“The exhibitions are the latest step in ensuring that local residents continue to be kept informed of the council’s investment in the infrastructure of Northwich.”

Public exhibition sessions will take place at Northwich Customer Service Centre, at 1 The Arcade, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday, January 21, and Monday, January 27.

A further session will be held at Northwich Library, in Witton Street, from 5pm to 7pm on Thursday, January 23.

The final session will take place at Northwich Community Forum, which will be held at Mid Cheshire College’s Hartford campus from 5.30pm to 6pm on Thursday, January 30.

The plans are also available to view on cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk and weavervalley.org.uk.

I hope the CWAC Road Planners make a better job in Northwich than they have at the High Street / Dene Drive Junction at Winsford.
I have recently travelled up High Street behind a vehicle on his way to the Asda Store, the driver had to place his vehicle in the outside lane to make the very tight left hand turn in to Dene Drive and he only missed mounting the kerbs on entry. There is so much land available where the Civic Hall stood, why was this junction made so tight when most of the large delivery vehicles have to make this left hand turn to reach their stores?
