    New cycle lanes are being created by narrowing traffic lanes on the approaches to Grosvenor bridge and the footways have been widened over the bridge to help pedestrians pass safely. An experimental 20 mph speed limit will also be introduced between the two roundabouts. To find out more click here.

    Works to install bus and cycle lanes at other locations in Chester will begin on 17 August along A5116 Liverpool Road, Upton between Dale Camp roundabout and Beechway/Upton Grange crossroads and on A51 Boughton between Spital Walk and Dee Lane by The Bars roundabout.
