Welcome to the Warrington Western Link public engagement website

Proposals are being brought forward for a new link road in Warrington, referred to as the Warrington Western Link.

The Warrington Western Link will ease congestion and improve traffic flow in the Borough. Warrington Borough Council wants to improve the town for local residents and businesses. Our plans for the Warrington Western Link will improve the quality of life for residents in the Borough.

Before a planning application is submitted, we want to engage with local people to make them aware of the current proposals. Visit the virtual exhibition to find out more about the proposed Western Link and how to have your say.
