Chester City Centre Diversions

From Monday 16th November 2020

From Monday 16th November 2020, a new rain and surface water drainage tunnel is being installed in Chester city centre. This work will result in some disruption, but will enable the transformation of the city centre for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors for decades to come.
