WARRINGTON Borough Council is set to introduce some footpath closures and a temporary 40mph speed limit on Chester Road in preparation for the sold-out Creamfields music festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
The Council intends to make an Order under Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The effect of which will be to introduce the following: –
40 MPH Speed Limit Restriction:
A56 Chester Road – From its junction with Runcorn Road to the Borough Boundary with Halton.
Hatton Footpath No.1 – From its junction with Warrington Road to the Borough Boundary with Halton.; Walton Footpath No.3 – From its junction with Chester Road to the Borough Boundary with Halton; Walton Footpath No.3A – From Walton Footpath No.3 to the Borough Boundary with Halton.
The Order will be effective from Thursday 9th August 2021 for five weeks, when signed on site.
Access will be under the control of the relevant Contractor for the duration of the restrictions.
An alternative route will be signed and available on site.
The reason for the temporary restrictions is to facilitate construction works associated with the Creamfields which takes place from August 26th-29th.
After being cancelled last year due to the pandemic all tickets have sold out for this year’s event.
Billed as ‘the party of the summer’, the music festival features music from some of the world’s biggest DJs and dance music artists.
This year’s line-up includes Afrojack, Basement Jaxx DJ set, David Guetta, Jonas Blue, Scooter, Darren Styles and many more.
