Roadworks and closures​​​

Licenced utility companies, contractors and the highway authority can carry out essential works on the roads in the borough of Rochdale for a variety of reasons such as to access existing/ install new apparatus, for highway improvement schemes and planned resurfacing works and other maintenance to bridges, roads and footpaths.

All roadworks should have a visible courtesy sign or permit board that gives a contact phone number and who the contractor is working for.  This list is generally ​updated daily, Monday to Friday.

Electricity North West town centre ​work

Major work by Electricity North West to install a power cable from the sub-station on Woodbine Street to the sub-station on College Road are taking place. The works will affect various streets and several major roads around the town centre.​ The route taken will cause the least amount of disruption however sections of the scheme will likely cause major disruption.​

This is to improve the resilience of the power network around Rochdale and avoid major power outages which were experienced during the 2015 Boxing Day floods. ​

Works affecting traffic sensitive streets have been planned as best as possible to take place during the school holidays, but due to the size of the scheme this isn't always possible. Traffic signals are to be manually operated during the peak periods to minimise disruption.

​ ​ ​ ​
Tuesday 14 ​February 2017
for approximately 6 days
Durham Street/Junction of Oldham Road
Works start on Durham Street which will require the switching off of the traffic signals at the junction of Oldham Road and replacing them with temporary 4-way traffic signals at the junction.

The effect will be minor/medium delays
Saturday 18 February 2017
for approximately 9 days
​Oldham Road
W​orks will progress along Oldham Road from Durham Street and onto Woodbine Street,​ this will require the use of temporary 4-way traffic signals at its junction with Durham Street
 
It's highly likely that this will cause severe delays along Oldham Road
Saturday 18 February 2017
for approximately 9 days​
St Mary’s Gate
Works will take place in the nearside lane of the southbound carriageway from College Road to The Esplanade this will require the near side lane to be closed for the duration of the works

It's likely this will cause severe delays

All works and traffic management will be removed ​​by the end of Sunday 26 February 2017, ready for the start of the school term on the Monday morning. The work will then continue along Durham Street and the rest of the route.

We'll be monitoring the progress and work with Electricity North West to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.
