Crewe Green Roundabout now fully open-works begin on Sydney Road

Following completion of the Crewe Green Roundabout designed to ease congestion and remove a traffic pinch-point, works on the railway bridge on Sydney Road Bridge improvement scheme, which will remove another traffic bottleneck and improve journeys to the north of Crewe. Sydney Road has now commenced. The new layout roundabout is now oval shaped with wider junctions being created to enable traffic to merge more smoothly from different directions. Shared cycleways/footways, with crossing points for cyclists and pedestrians with traffic light crossings, are also included in the scheme. Funding for the scheme has come from the Local Growth Fund, the National Productivity Investment Fund and developer contributions. Off site, the Crewe Green Roundabout team delivered educational activities to young people, including a workshop to first-year civil engineering students at Cheshire College – South and West, supported community events and raised funds in support of various charities. The Crewe Green Roundabout scheme is part of a larger programme of investment to deliver growth in Cheshire East. In addition, funding has been obtained to work up proposals for the dualling of the A500 between Crewe and the M6, estimated to cost £57m.
