Update on Chester Northgate Development


Cheshire West and Chester Council is continuing its site investigations in preparation for the Northgate development. We would like to make you aware of works taking place in the Northgate area.

Starting from 30 September a number of small trial pits will be dug along Hunter Street, Princess Street and St Martin’s Way to confirm the location of services such as gas, electric and BT.

Work will impact the footpath in places and there’ll be temporary closure of the access footpath ramp linking Hunter Street to St Martin’s Way. Diversion signs for pedestrians will be in place.

We aim to keep disruption to a minimum by digging 3 or 4 trial pits at a time. The work will take place between normal working hours and will be completed in approximately two to three weeks. Access to your property/business and the Market Car Park will not be affected.

Shopper Hopper

Whilst Princess Street works take place, the Shopper Hopper stop outside the Forum entrance will be moved a short distance down Princess Street. There’ll be signage at the stop to direct passengers.

We apologise for any disruption this work may cause. If you have any concerns, or would like to discuss further, then please contact me.
