Scheme Outline

Upgrade of the current at-grade junctions on the A5117 between the M56 and the Welsh border with grade-separated interchanges. The route forms part of the strategic Manchester to North Wales trunk route and as such is now heavily congested. The works complement upgrade works being carried out on the Welsh side of the border, but are not as extensive. In Wales the route is being widened to dual-four lane road with hard shoulders.

Progress

14 December 2006 Work began on 9 November on upgrading the English section of this route. The cost has now risen by £4.9m from the previous £46.5m.
14 August 2007 The Highways Agency is now announcing the midway point in the works, with beams being lifted into place on one of the scheme's main flyovers. Work is now due to be completed in Autumn 2008.
2 November 2008 The main line is now fully open and has been numbered A494. Work remains to be completed on the slip road westbound from the A540 roundabout, the northbound exit to the A550 and the exit slip road onto the A5117 Dunkirk roundabout.
17 December 2008 The westbound on slip from A540 Parkgate Road was completed and opened to traffic on 8th December 2008.
3 March 2009 Scheme officially opened by Highways Agency Chief Executive Graham Dalton.
