HOWEVER CAR DRIVERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO TRAVEL ALONG SMALLER ROADS, FOR EXAMPLE VIA VICARS CROSS TO WAVERTON TO BY-PASS ANY OBSTRUCTION ON A41
DISRUPTION IS LIKELY TO BE MUCH LESS THAN THE NOTICE WOULD IMPLY SO BEST TACTIC MAY BE TO BE READY TO DIVERT VIA WAVERTON- CHRISTLETON-VICARS CROSS AT THE LAST MINUTE.
