Chester Road swing bridge stuck in open position again!


POLICE are advising motorists to avoid the Chester Road area following reports of the swing bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal being stuck in the open position at rush hour today (Monday).

The bridge has undergone repairs in the past following similar problems which have also affected the other ageing bridges at Stockton heath and Latchford.

Local councillors and Warrington South MP Faisal Rashid have been calling  on Peel Holdings to carry out maintenance on the bridges, due to their poor state.

Each time a bridge sticks it leads to traffic chaos impacting on a wide area.

Hot weather has been blamed in the past for causing the metal to expand.
