The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR) is expected to reduce traffic flow and congestion a little on some local roads in the surrounding areas, including some roads through Hazel Grove.
To find out more about the proposals, discuss them with the Stockport Council team and provide your comments we invite you to attend our drop-in session at Hazel Grove Library, Beech Avenue, 4-7pm on Tuesday 21st November 2017.
It is normal for major road schemes like this to include mitigation measures for areas that will get busier and complementary measures where there will be reductions. Complementary Measures can be to encourage walking and cycling and support district and local centres. These measures will be paid for out of the A6MARR budget.
From 14th November to 5th December 2017 Stockport Council is consulting with affected parties on the draft package of complementary measures that have been developed for Hazel Grove.
The list of measures is below – online you can click on the individual items for more details: http://www.semmms.info/semmms/traffic-mitigation-complementary-measures/
