Residents in High Lane are being asked for their views on the current traffic calming measures in place on Windlehurst Road in the village.
Following the opening of the A555 dual carriageway linking the A6 at High Lane with Manchester Airport and the M56 motorway, residents raised concerns with officers and councillors about traffic issues in the village.
In February 2020, the council carried out a series of consultation sessions with residents. Feedback received highlighted issues with the current traffic calming measures on Windlehurst Road in High Lane. These measures were installed in 2015, in context of the predicted increase in traffic linked to the creation of the A555.
The council installed raised junction tables, road humps and speed cushions along Windlehurst Road in a bid to improve traffic flow and stop speeding vehicles. The council would now like residents’ views on the appropriateness of these measures:
- between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Andrew Lane; and
- between Andrew Lane and Broadhurst’s Bridge (Macclesfield Canal)
It will not be possible to consider the removal of individual traffic calming features such as speed cushions or raised table junctions. Instead, the council would like to know residents views on which of the above sections of the traffic-calming scheme should, in their entirety, either remain or be removed.
You can complete the survey online via the Stockport Council Consultations site. The deadline for contributions is Friday, February 12.
