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.
Resurfacing work continues on Rood Hill #Congleton following diesel spillage. We're working hard to reopen the road as soon as safe to do so this evening. To minimise disruption, the road will close again from 09:30 tomorrow to complete the surfacing & to replace road markings. pic.twitter.com/DsoZXNE2Bx— CEC Highways (@CECHighways) June 5, 2019
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.
