Disruptive Brook Street works to last four more weeks
AFTER serious disruption earlier this year, roadworks have made a return to one of the major routes through Knutsford for a further four-week period.
On Monday September 16, work began to install a push button pedestrian system near the junction of the Aldi superstore on Brook Street and this is expected to continue until September 30.
The news will no doubt be welcomed by parents who, back in May, called on Cheshire East Council highways officers to install the crossing to ensure the safety of children travelling to nearby schools.
However, the same may not be said of motorists who have experienced months of disruption due to roadworks associated with the creation of the new Aldi store.
Work began outside the site back in February and motorists were faced with overnight road closures and temporary traffic light systems up until early June.
However, Cheshire East has told the Guardian it doesn’t expect the works to cause as much annoyance as it did last time.
Knutsford Town Councillor Andrew Malloy said he is hopeful that Cheshire East will be better organised and bring the project to an end on time.
He added: “At least this time Cheshire East will be running the work themselves as opposed to the contractor.
“As a council, I know we have been speaking to Cheshire East about it and voiced our concerns and we will keep in regular contact with them.
“I will listen to what people tell me and if problems start I will be on to Cheshire East.”
