Possible traffic delays
Work continues to complete the remaining parts of this project although the vast majority of these are located away from the main A244 which will result in minimal or no impact to road users. There will be occasions where there will be a need to install traffic management on the main A244 Walton Bridge Road to undertake certain elements of the work and details will be provided on this webpage and displayed on signs on site in advance.
