On the right road

A NEW road, which aims to improve vehicle, cycle and pedestrian access between Stockport town centre and the M60, has partially opened.

But council chiefs have warned there may still be some disruption over the next few weeks as the finishing touches to the construction work takes place.

The Travis Brow Link Road is seen as a key part of the borough's £73m Town Centre Access Plan (TCAP).

A Stockport Council spokesman said: “As work in the area will continue over the coming weeks, we ask that people bear with us while we complete this excellent new facility.

“There will be further road closures and diversions – all of which will be signed for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians – for full details go to www.stockport.gov.uk/roadworks.”

Once fully complete, the new road will connect the A6 north of Stockport town centre to the M60 at junction one. New pedestrian and cycle routes will also be provided as part of the new road.

Kate Butler, council cabinet member for economy and regeneration, said: “This investment in our transport networks will make it easier for everyone to travel into and around Stockport town centre, regardless of how they travel.

“We understand that roadworks can be frustrating for residents, businesses and visitors to our borough – and we appreciate everyone's patience during this work.”
