Stockport council want to ensure that people, including residents, shoppers and businesses, feel the benefits directly.
The plans for the A6 to undergo some renovations and improvements have been underway since the temporary traffic lights were installed way back in February. The purpose is to ensure that it is easier for motorists to travel around the south west of Manchester and east Cheshire, by easing congestion on the Manchester Airport Relief Road. However Stockport council have another priority that is to improve the local district including making the centres along the route nicer places for everyone to commute to, visit and shop.
In light of this the Stockport council are holding two information evenings in order to provide locals the opportunity to air their concerns, discuss their questions and find out detailed information about what the improvements are and what benefits these improvements plan to have on the local area. The events are set to take place on:
- Tuesday 4th July 2017, 3-7PM at Heald Green Library (Tonight)
- Thursday 6th July 2017 at 6:30PM at Bramhall Library
Councillor Alex Ganotis, Leader of Stockport council said “This is a great opportunity for local communities in Heald Green and Bramhall to have their say on improvements to their local centres. I would urge everyone to get involved over the coming weeks.”
The work on the A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road is due to be completed in spring 2018 with the proposed improvements to take place following this.
Further details of the proposed improvements to Heald Green’s Finney Lane and Bramhall’s centre can be found on www.semmms.info. Stockport council have recommended that locals have a thorough read of the information and expressed their keen interest in the individual perspectives of local community.
