A5 Halton to Gledrid Verge Strengthening Works 17/05/21 – 20/06/21 between 20:00 – 06:00


Where and Why?

Work to strengthen the southbound verge that will permit access for Traffic Officers in the event of an incident and thereby reducing the need to close the A5 and divert all traffic through Chirk.

Works will commence 17th May 2021, working 7 nights a week over a 5 week period to complete the works as quickly as possible. However, works will not be undertaken over the bank holiday period (from Thursday 27th May to Monday 31st May).

Diversions and Safety Measures

The work will be carried out during nights 20:00 – 06:00 under full Southbound and Northbound carriageway closures (between Halton and Gledrid roundabouts). Traffic will use the B5070 strategic diversion route through Chirk between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00.
