ACTON Swing Bridge is set for another overnight closure next week so that further repair work can be completed.

The closure of the A49 Warrington Road will come into force on Monday at 10pm and the bridge will remain closed until 5am the next morning.

This will affect traffic crossing the River Weaver in both directions travelling towards Acton Bridge and Bartington.

Cheshire West and Chester Council say this is to allow the Canal and River Trust to continue replacing the wearing course on the bridge deck.

A diversion will be in place that sees traffic continue on the A559 Northwich Road to Lostock Gralam and then turn onto the A556.

Motorists will be able to re-join the A49 at the Oakmere crossroads near Blakemere Village.

It is anticipated that the closure will only be in place for one night.
