A34 closed for a second day after diesel spill

Part of the A34 in Congleton will remain closed for most of the day, following a diesel spill.

Rood Hill has been shut in both directions since around 10:45am yesterday morning (4 June), after a fuel tanker leaked 250 litres of diesel onto the carriageway. 

Resurfacing will take place today.

A 17 mile long diversion is in place via the A54 and the A523 to Macclesfield, then the A536 back towards Congleton.

Access is being maintained for residents.

The closure is set to be lifted early this evening, but will be shut again from 9:30am tomorrow (6 June) for final resurfacing works.
