Cheshire East Highways will be undertaking the final phase of safety works along Middlewood Road, Poynton starting on the 9th January for a period of 6 weeks, although this is based on good weather and ground conditions. During this time the road will be fully closed to traffic with a full diversion in place. There will be gatemen in place at either end to assist motorists where required. The works will install a reinforced Ground slab in the area where heavy rainfall earlier in the year caused significant loss of the embankment supporting both the Highway and the vehicle restraint system. The repairs will improve the resilience of the area to flooding through the incorporation of new drainage.
