Chester city centre goes clockwise

6 October 2020

A new rain and surface water drainage tunnel is being installed in Chester city centre; the work will regrettably result in some disruption to traffic, but will enable the transformation of the city centre for the benefit of residents and visitors for decades to come.

This is a major infrastructure project that will take approximately one year to complete, and will have a substantial impact on traffic using the inner ring road.

During the main construction period, from 16 November 2020 for approximately 12 months, St. Martin's Way and Nicholas Street will be closed to southbound traffic from the Fountains Roundabout.

The most efficient and practical solution will be to make the inner ring road primarily two-lane clockwise one-way route for all traffic.
