TEMPORARY lights on the A50 Holmes Chapel Road at Toft have been removed and the road has reopened, Cheshire East Council has announced.

The carriageway at the junction with Middlewich Road collapsed on a week ago, leading Cheshire East Council Highways teams to closing the road in both directions while undertaking 'major repairs'.

Repairs to two collapsed culverts took place at the junction with Middlewich Road, between Goughs Lane and Seven Sisters Lane.

The council's Highways Twitter account said: "Temp lights on A50 Holmes Chapel Rd #Knutsford are being removed & the road has reopened. Thanks for your patience - repairs are complete."
