The new £30m Poynton Relief Road has been granted planing permission by East cheshire Council.
Its northern end will connect into a junction with the A6 Manchester Airport relief road that is currently under construction and the southern end links to the A523 London Road via a new roundabout junction to the west of the Adlington Travel Lodge.
The new road will link the A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road, due to open Autumn 2017, to London Road in Poynton in a joint project between ECC and Stockport Council.
A joint planning application for the scheme was submitted on 1 September 2016.
The 3km road is part of the South East Manchester Multi-Modal Scheme (SEMMS) a plan developed to improve existing transport problems on the south east side of Greater Manchester.
The road will travel within the Stockport boundary, under the A5149 Chester Road passing across the former Woodford Aerodrome runway.
At the southern end of the scheme, which falls within the boundary of Cheshire East, the route travels to the west of Adlington Business Park before connecting into a new roundabout junction to the west of the Adlington Travelodge. Links from this roundabout would allow the relief road to connect into the A523 London Road and Adlington Golf Centre.
The project was approved at a meeting of the Cheshire East strategic planning committee on Tuesday 10 January.
