Partial closure of Chester's Grosvenor Bridge for emergency pothole repairs

27 April 2010

Drivers travelling into Chester at night on Friday and Saturday (30 April and 1 May) will not be able to use the Grosvenor Bridge.

One carriageway will be closed while emergency pothole repair work is carried out.

A one way system for traffic will be in operation between 7pm and 6am. Drivers travelling out of the city will be unaffected.

Area Highways Manager, Kieran Collins, said: “We apologise for the closure but it is important to carry out repairs on both sides of the road.

“We will also take the opportunity during the closure period to carry out routine maintenance work on street lighting in the area.”

During the closure period traffic heading into the city will be diverted over the Old Dee Bridge in Handbridge.
