A533 Expressway Bridge Replacement

We’re replacing the existing bridge that carries the A533 Chester Road over the M56.

Region:  North West
Start date:  2021
Cost:  TBC
Status:  PLANNED
Type:  Maintenance Scheme
End date:  2022

Progress report

We’ve recently confirmed our Side Roads Order & Compulsory Purchase Order with the Department for Transport. These documents provide details on the proposed layout for the new bridge and all lands required as part of our construction works.

Public notices which confirm these Orders have been published in a local newspaper and posted on the existing bridge. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic and current Government guidelines, we’re unable to deposit these documents for you to view at a local venue, but these are available within the media and documents section on this webpage.

What’s next

We will now be working with our delivery partner, Amey Sir Robert McAlpine, to complete the detailed design of the new bridge, and prepare for the construction phase of this project.

The scheme in detail

The M56/A533 Expressway Bridge is a concrete bridge that carries the Chester Road combined with the A533 over the M56 motorway. The bridge is located between junctions 11 and 12 and is a vital local link, providing access across the M56 to Runcorn from Preston Brook and Northwich.

We plan to replace the existing structure with a new 70m two-span concrete bridge, consisting of a single two-lane carriageway and a combined footpath/cycleway. The replacement of this bridge will ensure an increased life span of over 120 years for road users, maintaining safety in the long term.

A substantial part of the project will be built off site to minimise disruption and we’ll keep the existing bridge open whilst we construct the new bridge. On completion, traffic will be transferred to the new structure to continue the flow of traffic and allow for the demolition of the exiting bridge structure.

Why we need this scheme

The existing structure has reached the end of its serviceable life and therefore needs to be replaced to maintain and improve this important link for motorists, pedestrians, horse riders and cyclists.

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • design and build a replacement of the A533 Expressway Bridge
  • demolish and remove the existing A533 Expressway Bridge structure
  • reinstate the M56 motorway to its original state prior to implementation of the A533 Expressway Bridge propping scheme
  • ensure road users and the community are not adversely affected
  • improve accessibility for cyclists, walkers and other vulnerable road users of the local road network
