Stockport Council has committed to invest £100m to improve roads and footpaths across the borough over a nine year delivery period. This funding will be used to carry out a range of repairs from patching to resurfacing in targeted areas which will provide a long term solution to the deterioration on the highway network.
As part of the programme, Stockport Council will be carrying out carriageway resurfacing works on a section of Stockport Road (Station Road to The Drive) including the junction with Cross Lane in Marple, these works will be carried out by our Alliance partner, Tarmac Ltd.
This work is anticipated to commence on the 25th June 2018 for up to 2 weeks, weather permitting, the work will be carried out overnight between 6.30PM to 5.00AM.
During the times stated above it will be necessary to utilise temporary two way traffic signals on Stockport Road and to restrict traffic movements on Station Road, Church Lane and Cross Lane at their junctions with Stockport Road using temporary road closures. These measures are in place to minimise disruption to residents and businesses and to allow safe working operations to take place.
Access to properties and businesses in the working area will be maintained where possible however it may be restricted for certain periods as the work progresses.
Signed diversions will be in operation advising of appropriate alternative routes for vehicles affected by the work. The diversion route for vehicles wishing to access Station Road from Stockport Road is via Hollins Lane. Vehicles wishing to gain access to Church Lane from Stockport Road will be directed to use Stockport Road/Hibbert Lane/Edwards Way/Leigh Avenue. Vehicles wishing to access Cross Lane from Stockport Road will be directed to use Stockport Road/Hibbert Lane/Buxton Lane.
Properties directly affected by this work will receive a letter explaining the scope of the work and timescales involved in due course
Information boards will also be erected on site and at other key points in the surrounding area advising road users of the planned work
TFGM (buses) have been contacted and they will make the necessary arrangements to bus services that will be affected during working times. Although some local disruption is inevitable this will be kept to a minimum by staff on site.
