A SECTION of Barbers Lane near Antrobus will be closed from today for five days.

The full closure is in place until Friday between the junctions with Nook Lane and Reed Lane.

This is to allow Cheshire West and Chester Council to carry out culvert repair works.

A culvert is a structure that allows water to flow under a road.

A diversion has been created that will instead see motorists use Arley Road, Lodge Lane, Hollins Lane and Knutsford Road.

A traffic notice issued by the council reads: “The closure will come into force on Monday, January 27 and will be in force for a maximum of five days.

“It is anticipated that the work will last for approximately five days.”
