£8 million to tackle road bottleneck just over border

A major traffic bottleneck which affects many people from this area travelling into Chester and beyond is to be tackled with an £8 million road scheme, the Highways Agency has announced today (Monday).

As part of a £31 million spending package for the North West of England, the agency will improve the junction of the A55/A483 – known as the Posthouse roundabout.
It says the aim is to reduce congestion by widening the A55 eastbound exit slip road and parts of the circulatory carriageway as well as installing traffic signals to the A483 southbound approach.
Aim of the scheme, according to Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin, is to support nearby Chester Business Park as well as improving a key junction linking North West England and North Wales.
The scheme also supports the creation of 11,650 jobs and the 1,770 homes by 2020, said the Minister.
