And which brainbox decided to close Dean Row Road at the same time!. All Wilmslow traffic is going through Handforth and the quests at the Bluebell lights and I. Handforth are enormous.
A tip to whoever took this decision - have a word with the bod in the next desk.

Jon - The roadworks on Dean Row are scheduled to finish this week, so they shouldn’t overlap.

These roadworks are being done when the roads are at their quietest during the summer holidays, but given the length of them, they are having to be done close together to fit them in before the schools go back.

Hello Cllr Mark Goldsmith,

We're no experts in traffic management of course but we think commuters sat in the resulting traffic jams from the joint closures of Dean Row and Adlington will probably share Jon Newell's frustration ?

Wilmslow residents can't also help wonder something else - probably more serious longer term.

What will the impact be in the same circumstances once traffic from CE approved estates at Anwhyl-Sagars Rd, Handforth 'Garden' Village, Heathfield 'Farm', Handforth-Dean Sanctuary & Bollin Park (have we perhaps missed any ?) all hit the road network ?

I know it was unexpected but is it not possible to defer some of these works just a bit until the doomed A555 can at least be opened again?
It may be school holidays but some people do actually have to go to work in school holidays!!!!!!!
