Progress being made on A556 bypass

Aerial photographs show the progress that is being made on a £192 million scheme to create a new road that links the M6 and M56 in Cheshire.

Highways England is staging a public open day to mark the first anniversary of the start to construction of the new A556 bypass.

Work on the new road started in November last year. And Highways England and Costain – the lead contractors for the project – will throw open the doors of the main site office near Lymm for a public exhibition and open day on Saturday (7 November).

Roads Minister Andrew Jones said: “This government is investing £13 billion in transport to help build a Northern Powerhouse and close the economic gap between north and south. The work on the A556 is one of the many schemes across the north already underway which will improve our roads, reverse decades of underinvestment and secure long-term economic growth for all.”

Meanwhile, new aerial pictures of the scheme have been released.
