Olympic Torch road closures

Those that travel to Crewe or the railway station, or want to see the Olympic Torch Relay,  will be interested in this announcement:

"The Olympic Torch Relay arrives in Crewe on the morning of Thursday, May 31, and, as part of the preparations, the Council can now announce a series of road closures in the town.

The Council, in conjunction with the police, has taken the decision to close roads where the Olympic Flame is being carried by torchbearers.

The road closures are necessary to protect the public and make this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity safe and enjoyable for all Cheshire East residents and participants.

However, the road closures are likely to cause significant traffic disruption and residents are being advised to allow plenty of time for their journeys during the morning.

Anyone planning to go and watch the relay is being asked to walk or cycle to the route where possible. Those travelling in their own vehicles are being encouraged to set off early and park in off-street car parks.

Public transport will be disrupted and access to Crewe station will be affected.

The following roads will be closed between approximately 7am-9.30am:

* Hungerford Road

* A532 Macon Way

* A532 Vernon Way

* A532 Earle Street

* Market Street

* A5078 Edleston Road

* A534 Nantwich Road

* A534 Crewe Green Road
Information leaflets and maps are currently being prepared and will be distributed to all homes and businesses along the roads that are closed, as well as those adjacent to them.

Although the torch will only be passing through the town for a short period, it is necessary to close the road for longer to accommodate the various events that will be lining the route as well as the road cleaning after the relay has passed.

Further information about waste collections on Thursday, May 31, will be communicated nearer the time.

All the information, including a map of road closures, is available to view online at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/2012
