Roads closures in Ollerton area

Police closed a number of roads last night (Monday) following damage to power cables in Ollerton.

The roads are closed around Ollerton, between Chelford and Knutsford. The busiest, the A537,  is closed from Chelford Roundabout.

A vehicle collided with an electricity pole – bringing live wires down resulting in a number of homes being without power.

A Cheshire Police spokesman said: “Road Closure: Chelford Road from Chelford Roundabout towards Knutsford. Marthall Lane, Seven sisters Lane and School Lane are also closed at the junctions with Chelford Road. Please avoid the area and find an alternate route.”

Motorists travelling through the area should expect delays due to the ongoing incident – although police say they hope to have the road open by lunchtime Tuesday.

The spokesman added: “The issue is surrounding electrical cables in the area. We are hoping it will be open before it would affect the morning commute.”

It is unclear if other emergency services are in the area at the moment or if the driver of the vehicle has been seriously hurt
