A556 dual carriageway work drawing to a close

Highways Reporters

The final phase of work to complete the £192 million A556 dual carriageway will start next month (February).  

Highways England, which is building the new link road between junction 19 of the M6 at Knutsford and junction 7 of the M56 at Bowdon, has detailed the final phase of roadworks for the project.

Highways England project manager Paul Hampson said: “We are on course to open the new dual carriageway by the end of March, if not sooner. As well as starting work next month to connect the new dual carriageway to the M6 and M56 link roads, we’ll be using the weekend closures to do some preparation along the existing A556 which will become a B road with much-improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.”
