Residents face delays to get into Leigh Marshes HWRC

UK Power Network (UKPN) will be carrying out essential work on a new service connection for Leigh Marina. The works are scheduled to run from Tuesday 13th April to Friday 30th April, between the hours of 7am – 7pm, Monday to Friday.

Whilst the works are not being carried out by the council and are taking place on a private road, multi-way traffic signals will be in place, that will affect traffic flow and access to council services in the area. Anyone planning on visiting the Leigh Marshes household waste recycling centre (HWRC) or Two Tree Island will likely face delays getting into the sites.

The council is urging anyone planning on visiting the Leigh Marshes HWRC to consider the UKPN traffic management that will be in place before setting off, and to consider safely storing their rubbish at home temporarily if possible. If rubbish cannot be stored safely at home, please be aware there may be delays in getting to the site because of the roadworks. Please check the on-site webcam for vehicles queuing to access the site.
