Deansway and Bridgefield Avenue will both be closed on Tuesday, 3rd September, to enable Cheshire East Highways to carry out carriageway resurfacing works.

Deansway will be closed from its junction with Bridgefield Avenue and Bridgefield Avenue will be closed from its junction with Manchester Road to its junction with Deanway.

It is anticipated that the works will be carried out between 8am and 5pm.

A section of Alderley Road will then be closed on Thursday, 5th September, to enable Cheshire East Highways to carry out surface dressing works.

The road will be closed from Whitehall Brook Roundabout (near the Kings Arms) to Harden Park Roundabout (at the junction with the A34 bypass) between 8am and 5pm.

Access for pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and for residents where possible.

Whitehall Brook runs alongside the Wilmslow/Alderley bypass roundabout. Will the affected section be from there up to the King's Arms i.e passing Royal London?

The roundabout near the King's Arms is usually called the "Fulshaw Cross".

The road signs say that the "Whitehall Bridge roundabout" is the one at the northern end of the Alderley Edge bypass. I think that's the same one as the "Harden Park Roundabout".

If it is the section from the Alderley Bypass to the King's Arms - then I seem to remember this stretch has been surface dressed in 2010 and 2011, and some more resurfacing took place in 2012. And the latest "repair" has broken up in places. Is it not time to do the job properly?

I find it ridiculous that the council would choose the stone-chipping resurfacing method anyway. These roads have typically less grip than "original" tarmac, even after they have worn in. The disruption just isn't worth the road we have to drive on afterwards.

Perhaps the council would reconsider the method if everyone affected were to put in a claim for car-body paintwork. Since the council have started this year on their crusade to ruin our roads, they have also ruined the nose of my car. Now, i have a 15 year old car, and the paint is not a common colour and is slightly faded. I have already tried to match the cars paint, but it just is not available.

the council should also take note of the huge disruption from closing the bypass between summerfields and handforth dean. there were points during those days that traffic leaving wilmslow was at a uniform standstill.

The council are also going to dig up the intersection in the center of wilmslow, between Alderley Road, Water Lane and Grove Street. The plan is to disrupt traffic for around a month, to re-lay wires for the pedestrian crossing, as they currently do not beep. Surely there is a better method that causes much less disruption, with much lower costs. how about custom signalling boxes which sense the green light of the crossing signal and beep independantly of the traffic signals????? think about it!

Please! No more stone chips. Let's not have any more roads like Knutsford Rd, Wilmslow, surely the noisiest surface in the region.

I left Bridgefield Road at 1.50pm today and all they had done was clean the gutters at the side of the road and put plastic covers on the manholes.
No workers to be seen!

I left Deanway at 8.50am this morning having seen the signs everywhere stating the work would start at 7am. Some people had moved there vehicles in preparation for this early start the previous evening. Would it not be more helpful if the workmen actually knew what time to start instead of causing increased disruption by stretching it out!! I've just been passed and nope, no signs of any further progress.

Have no doubts Raymond, it will be stone chips that will be laid on Alderley Road. More of a point of annoyance and dismay, is that the council's Highways persists in repeating what it knows has not worked previously. Do they not say, anyone can make a mistake but only a fool repeats it.

Alderley Road was chipped around mid summer 2012 (from memory, August time?). On the 26th Septemberflood waters gushed out of Royal London, the road was under flood and closed for some time. However, the road remained under flood waters for approx a further six days. When it was cleared, all the chippings had been washed off, the road was back to where it was, and worse, before August. Now they are about to repeat the pointless excercise.

Another pointless exercise CE specialises in and blows its trumpet about is filling in pot holes, which when the bad weather arrives will return to pot holes. It will make far greater economic sense if our pot holed, worn out road surfaces were treated to correct reinstatement and resurfaced to a decent, high standard, one which will last for years.

Save our money CEC, get the jobs resurfaced correctly instead of your usual cheap, shoddy work.

I've just been down Bridgefield Rd and Deanway again this lunchtime, Deanway has been resurfaced and looks a mess. If this is the stone chip surface that you are referring to, Tom and Manuel, then it seems a waste of time and, more to the point, our money!
Bridgefield Road still hasn't been done, and yet again, no workers present!
Then they wonder why residents start to park their cars again, and cause more delays.

I live on Deanway and the work carried out is awful, it is messy and looks very untidy, this has now been going on for 5 days when the work was scheduled for 2 days. This is now going into next week. Some signs displayed on the road said it needed to be kept clear on 5th and 6th sept then the next signs says 9th and 10th sept. The residents are getting well and truly fed up of all the messing about and the sheer lack of work the men do when they do bother to turn up. Does anyone know what is going on???
