Cheshire East Highways will be carrying out bridge strengthening works on Hall Lane, Elton near Sandbach Hill Farm for up to 12 weeks starting September 29, 2014.

After assessment, the bridge requires strengthening and to do this a concrete saddle will be constructed over the arch of the bridge.

While the strengthening works are being undertaken, the bridge and the highway will need to be closed, as the whole of the existing bridge deck needs to be excavated to allow the concrete saddle to be made.

Additionally, during this time, the Highways Investment Programme will be carrying out a length of resurfacing on Hall Lane, between Clay Lane and Warmingham Lane, working within the road closure.

The works will take up to 12 weeks to complete and during this time traffic
will be diverted via
• Hall Lane
• Elton Road
• Salt Line Way
• Station Road
• London Road
• Mill Lane
• Dragons Lane
• Whitehall Lane
• School Lane
• Warmingham Road and return.
