Just to update people about this.

Cheshire East Highways has carried out water jetting and CCTV survey works to the drainage systems along Adlington Road and have found a defective United Utilities system that needs further investigation. This has been reported to them.

The road closure will remain in place for this morning (Thursday 12th) until two-way temporary signals are installed to allow the road to partially re-open.

Mark Goldsmith - thank you for the update. It helps to know what progress has been made and whether Adlington Road will remain closed. As a resident, the lack of traffic noise is very welcome but I know what an inconvenience this is to so many people.
