Drivers can expect long delays in Wilmslow town centre over the coming weeks as Styal Road will be closed from Monday, 18th September, for approximately 12 weeks.
The closure between HM Prison Styal and the junction with Cliff Road is to enable Electricity North West to upgrade to the local power network.
Additionally, Swan Street is now closed until September 20th and Hawthorn Lane is closed from Bank Square to Hawthorn Grove until October 4th for Electricity North West to install new cables.
Mark Dermody contacted wilmslow.co.uk to say "The traffic today in Wilmslow is unacceptable. Cheshire East have allowed 5 sets of simultaneous roadworks that are causing havoc."
Engineers from Electricity North West, the region's power network operator, are replacing 5km of underground electricity cables between Alderley Edge and Wilmslow.
Road signs will be in place, a diversion route will be signposted and traffic will be monitored.
More than 22,000 homes and business in Wilmslow, Handforth, Chelford and Alderley Edge are set to benefit from a £1.7m upgrade to the local power network.
Electricity North West said the project, which will replace faulty oil-filled cables which have been in place for around 60 years, with new environmentally-friendly and efficient cables was scheduled to start in August but having listened to feedback they adapted the plan.
John Pietsch, South Operations Transmission Manager, for Electricity North West, said: "We're proud to be investing almost £2m in the local community to ensure 22,000 customers enjoy a reliable supply of power which we all take for granted every day.
"Power cuts are thankfully rare, but as these cables were first installed in the 1960s it's vital we upgrade them now and replace a faulty cable, so we continue to deliver an excellent, safe and affordable service to all our customers across the region.
"It's an investment of around £1 per property per year to keep power flowing for at least another 60 years, so it's great to be delivering such value for such an essential service to the local area."
It is anticipated that the works on Styal Road will be completed by Friday 8th December 2017.
