Bridge Foot road markings to be changed on Monday and Tuesday
4:06pm Monday 1st October 2012 in News
WORK will be carried out overnight on Monday to Tuesday to correct the road marking mistakes on Bridge Foot.
Red faced highways officials will have to repaint the road following a flood of complaints from motorists over the past two weeks.
The controversial changes have seen drivers stuck in hour long queues when attempting to travel to the south of town.
On Friday, council bosses announced the u-turn and have said today work will be carried out between 7pm and 6am today, Monday, and tomorrow, Tuesday.
A spokesman said: "Drivers are asked to look out for the temporary signage in the area and be extra vigilant to the changes in the layout, particularly on Tuesday as they will be only partly complete.
"The amendments will result in the three lanes at the Wilson Patten Street/Bridgefoot entry having the following designations: Lane 1 (short lane near the Lower Bridge Street) - A49N (A57) Lane 2 - Retail Park and A5061 (Knutsford Road) Lane 3 - A49(S) Wilderspool Causeway & A5060 Chester Road.
"The council apologises for any inconvenience caused."
