Hundreds of people have been airing their views about a major road project at a series of public meetings.
Exhibitions are being held until December 1 for residents, businesses and motorists to have their say on the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road project – but there are only two dates left.
As part of the wider South East Manchester Multi-Modal Strategy (SEMMMS), the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is a proposed 10km dual-carriageway, linking the A6 at Hazel Grove Stockport to the A555 at Bramhall, and Handforth to Manchester Airport.
Questionnaires have been posted to residents and Cheadle MP Mark Hunter is urging people to return them to ensure their views are heard.
The exhibitions started on November 3 and more than 700 people have already attended to view the proposals and speak to the project team.
The remaining displays are this Thursday (10am to 8pm) at Bramley Centre, Bramley Close, Bramhall, and Saturday, December 1 (10am to 4pm) at the Woodford Community Centre on Chester Road.
Mr Hunter said: “The campaign for this vital link road has been running for years and in countless surveys, residents have shown strong support for the project.
“Even though the vast majority are in favour of the road’s completion, it is true to say that a small but vociferous minority are still opposed to the idea. That is why I am encouraging everybody to make sure they have their say on the plans, so we can get this road built as soon as possible, which will relieve traffic across the area and add up to 5,000 jobs and £2.5bn to the local economy.”
People have until January to return the survey. Log on to semmms.info for details.
