Travelling to Chester Sunday ? Check out road closures

12 Apr 2023

If you're travelling to Chester this Sunday morning and contemplating the M56, please be aware of the following information from National Highways. Note that the start time for the first T20 has been put back until 11.30am:

"In April 2023, we’ll be ready to open the new A533 Expressway bridge for traffic. To do this, we’ll need to close the A533 in both directions between Murdishaw roundabout and Preston Brook for two full weekends. This is so we can complete surfacing work and paint new road markings to join the existing A533 to the new bridge.  

The A533 Expressway bridge will be closed from 7pm Friday 14 April - 6am Monday 17 April. The new bridge will be open for traffic at 6am on Monday 17 April.

"Access via the bridge will be retained for walkers and cyclists, who’ll be assisted through the closures. Diversion routes will be fully signposted for drivers, making use of the local A558 and A533 roads."
