From the Council:
Footway Patching on Gatley Road, Gatley (Kingsway to Church Road)
Stockport Council is undertaking a programme of repairs across the borough as part of our ‘Investing in Stockport’ initiative. One of the key themes of the initiative is investing in Stockport’s economic growth and regeneration to create more opportunities for local residents.
Stockport Council has committed to invest £100m to improve roads and footpaths across the borough over a nine year delivery period. This funding will be used to carry out a range of repairs from patching to resurfacing in targeted areas which will provide a long term solution to the deterioration on the highway network.
As part of the programme, Stockport Council will be undertaking footway patching works on Gatley Road, between Kingsway and Church Road, in preparation for a preventative treatment at a later date. These works will be carried out by Totally Local Company. Work is scheduled to commence on Monday 30th July taking around 10 days to complete, weather permitting. The work will be carried out between 09:30 and 15:30 Monday to Friday, and 09:00 to 17:00 weekends, subject to the necessary permissions being obtained.
Whilst the works are ongoing, it will be necessary to restrict traffic movements along Gatley Road utilising two-way lights, with work close to the junction of the A34 being undertaken on a weekend using stop and go boards. These measures are in place to minimise disruption to residents and businesses and to allow safe working operations to take place.
Although some local disruption is inevitable this will be kept to a minimum by our staff on site. 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.14 Comments
