A ROAD closure will result in a diversion through Middlewich on Sunday.

The resurfacing works are being carried out on the A533 in Sandbach between 9.30am-3.30pm, with more works planned for the following Sunday as well.

Drivers are being advised to use the A54 Holmes Chapel Road as an alternative route to and from Sandbach, with delays expected at various points throughout the day.

The road resurfacing works, which are being carried out by Cheshire East Council, are expected to result in heavier than normal traffic through the town centre.
