Planned road closures in Ellesmere Port and Blacon areas Date published: 22nd October 2015 8.21am

Cheshire Constabulary is advising motorists of planned road closures which could cause higher volumes of traffic this afternoon (Thursday, October 22) in the Chester and Ellesmere Port areas.

In Ellesmere Port from 11am until 2.30pm, Enfield Road will be closed from its junction with Whitby Road to its junction with Compton Place. Marina Drive will be closed from Rivington Road to Civic Way, and Westminster Car Park will also be unavailable.

Meanwhile in Chester from 1pm until 4pm, Blacon Avenue will be closed from its junction with A540 Parkgate Road to its junction with Saughall Road.

Pedestrian access to premises situated on the affected roads will be maintained at all times.

There may be additional congestion on the surrounding roads at these times. The closures have been planned in partnership with our colleagues from Cheshire West & Chester Council to manage traffic expected for a large funeral, and motorists are advised to avoid the affected areas at these times where possible.
