Another road being resurfaced as part of the Lib Dem £100m investment: Wilmslow Road, between Abney Place and Broadway. Needless to say, there is no way to do this without disruption, so the work is being carried out overnight. The work is planned to start on 25th June 2018 and take up to a week to complete.
Here’s what the Council have told us:
Stockport Council will be carrying out carriageway resurfacing works on a section of Wilmslow Road, Cheadle (Abney Place to Broadway) these works will be carried out by our Alliance partner, Tarmac Ltd.
This work is anticipated to commence on the 25th June 2018 for up to a week, weather permitting, the work will be carried out overnight between 7.00PM to 5:00AM, subject to the necessary permissions being obtained via TFGM and the Streetworks team.
During the times stated above it will be necessary to utilise temporary multi-way traffic signals on Wilmslow Road between Abney Place and Broadway. These measures are in place to minimise disruption to residents and businesses and to allow safe working operations to take place.
Access to properties and businesses in the working area will be maintained where possible however it may be restricted for certain periods as the work progresses.
Properties directly affected by this work will receive a letter explaining the scope of the work and timescales involved in due course
Information boards will also be erected on site advising road users of the upcoming planned work.
We have contacted TFGM (buses) and they will make the necessary arrangements to bus services that will be affected during working times. Although some local disruption is inevitable this will be kept to a minimum by our staff on site.
