Purpose of this consultation

Cheshire East Council is seeking your views on the options for link roads to the Southern Link Road Bridge (SLRB), which will provide another crossing over the railway to the south of Crewe Station.

The SLRB is a new road and bridge crossing from the B5071 Gresty Road to the west, and the A532 Weston Road to the east. The scheme seeks to improve road infrastructure and traffic management on the congested A534 Nantwich Road, especially outside the existing Station entrance.

These improvements are part of the Crewe Hub Area Action Plan (AAP) which includes proposals to improve the transport network in preparation for the arrival of HS2.

You can find out more about the scheme by visiting the website at

Your feedback on our proposals for transport improvements and the SLRB options will be analysed and used to inform the next stages of design where applicable and practicable. We will also produce a report which will be submitted as part of the planning application.

Please note this is separate to the Crewe HS2 Hub AAP consultation.
