A KEY route in the town centre is set for two weeks of overnight closures.

Wilson Patten Street and Parker Street will be shut for resurfacing works between 7pm and 5am from December 4 for a fortnight.

The roadworks form part of the new Centre Park link road, which will see a new bridge crossing created over the Mersey from Slutchers Lane to Chester Road.

Warrington Guardian:

A Warrington Borough Council spokesman said: “Carriageway resurfacing works are due to commence on Wilson Patten Street from December 4 for two weeks.

“Parker Street and Wilson Patten Street will be closed from the junction of Liverpool Road to Bridge Foot to manage these works.

“Both will be closed between 7pm until 5am with access only for residents, businesses and the train station.

“These works will only take place on weekdays.

“However, we won't be operating on Thursday evenings due to late night shopping.

Warrington Guardian:

“We'll reopen both to traffic outside these working times.

“Due to the classification and location of the road, we'll have to carry out resurfacing works between 7pm and 1am.

“We apologise in advance for any disruption and inconvenience this may cause.”

Diversions will be in place via Liverpool Road, Froghall Lane, Midland Way, Brick Street and Mersey Street while work is carried out.

Three-way temporary traffic signals are currently in place between Warrington Bank Quay Station and Winmarleigh Street from 9.30am to 3.30pm and will remain until Christmas Eve.
