Up to 20 weeks of work to refurbish historic village centre road


UP to 20 weeks of work is set to start on Pepper Street in Lymm village centre next month.

It follows on from a public consultation when almost 250 people gave feedback on the best refurbishment options for the historic stone setts.
The majority of respondents said they would like to see the road reconstructed with reclaimed setts.

Temporary Clearway: Rose Bank Turning Head at western end adjacent to Nos. 1 & 2; Scholars Green Lane from its junction with Limefield Avenue to its junction with Longbutt Lane.
Temporary Suspension of The Borough of Warrington (Longbutt Lane, Lymm) (Prohibition of Driving) Order 1982 in its entirety.
