To ensure that the local road network is fit for purpose when the future HS2 Interchange Station is operational, we are remodelling and improving the existing network and creating new routes on HS2 land.

On Friday 23 October 2020, sections of the A452 Chester Road (northbound) and A446 Stonebridge Road (northbound and southbound) between Stonebridge Island and M6 Junction 4 were closed to traffic. This closure enabled LM to safely install a bridge deck over the A446.

We’re pleased to inform you that the full closure of the A452 and A446 was lifted today, one day earlier than planned, as a result of detailed planning and collaboration.

Road users can now travel in both directions along the A452. A temporary 24-hour single lane closure is now in place along the A446 southbound for approximately five days, to allow us to carry out various activities to reinstate the road. Please view the works notification, including maps.

We would like to thank you for your cooperation to allow us to successfully complete this phase of work.

If you would like to find out more about what we are doing in the Interchange area for the remainder of 2020, you can read our most recent HS2 Update newsletter.
