Works to improve the Manchester Road/High Street/Stockport Road junction by Cheadle Green start on 11 March and will last for around 5 weeks. There will be some traffic disruption during the works, and the Lib Dem team will be monitoring to ensure this is minimised.
The Lib Dem team have welcomed the improvements, which the Lib Dems have been campaigning for over several years.
“Local residents have been asking for proper pedestrian crossings at the junction for several years,” said Cllr Graham Greenhalgh. “We are very pleased that the work is now happening, even though it will mean some disruption. The improvements will make the junction safer for pedestrians and cyclists while keeping cars moving.”
The works will mean Manchester Road is closed southbound at the junction for at least some of the period, with a diversion via the A34. We will be speaking to council officers to make sure this period is minimised, as we know this diversion has caused long delays when it’s been done before.
