Road closed at Lymm following sewer collapse


RUSHGREEN Road at Lymm has been closed following a sewer collapse.

The drain on a stretch of Rushgreen Road near the Sainsbury’s store collapsed at around 7am on Saturday morning.

United Utilities have been out working on site but the road remained closed on Sunday evening.

Local Cllr. Grham Gowland said: “The collapse of a large sewer is never good news, and the impact on local traffic is going to be severe, especially during the school run and rush hour.

“United Utilities are working on repairing the collapse – and get the road open again, however it’s going to be a difficult few days and adds to the disruption the village is already facing due to the existing road closures.
We’re asking for the police to help manage the speeding and congestion issues this has caused in the area.”

As a result the CAT 5 and 5a services between Lymm, Warburton, Partington and Dunham Massey and Altrincham will not be running through the village.
Services will divert via tghe A56 between Lymm and Altrincham.

It’s hoped the road will reopen on Wednesday.
