Maintenance promised for St Michael's Way underpass

Middlewich Guardian: Maintenance promised for St Michael's Way underpass Maintenance promised for St Michael's Way underpass

A DRAINAGE team has pledged to improve the state of St Michael’s Way underpass.

The subway has been covered with ‘rusty water’ due to a leak for about six weeks which has caused people to avoid it and cross the busy road instead.

An 80-year-old who lives nearby but did not wish to be named said: “People are taking their lives into their hands.

“Nobody seems to be interested in doing anything about it.

“It’s covered the entire underpass - there’s not a dry bit in there.

“You can’t walk through without being splashed and if it gets on your clothes it ruins them.”

Cheshire East Council is responsible for the subway’s maintenance.

A spokesman said: “We are aware of this issue and have got the situation in hand. A drainage dig up team will be attending the site soon to investigate and remedy the problem.”
