Prohibition of Driving: Lumb Brook Road (Northbound) – From its junction with Stockton Lane to its junction with Chester Road/Grappenhall Road.

Prohibition of Right Turn: Stockton Lane – To prohibit any vehicle proceeding on Stockton Lane from making a right-hand turn into Lumb Brook Road.

The Order was to be effective from 26th July 2021 until 29th November 2021, however due to lead in times of materials and engineering difficulties on site the restrictions are now required to remain in place until 23rd December 2021.
