Road Repairs on Torkington Rd (Overnight Working)

by paulankers on 1 February, 2018

Stockport Council will be carrying out carriageway resurfacing works on London Road from Torkington Road to Church Grove and Torkington Road from London Road to Avondale Avenue. The works started on  the 31st January 2018 and are expected to take approximately 2 weeks to complete, weather permitting. The working hours will be between 8pm and 5am. 

Local Campaigner Paul Ankers said, “This is one of our busiest roads but repairs are vital. I am glad work is taking place overnight. LibDems, when running the Council, prioritised road repairs and schemes like this are part of our £100M investment plan that will still run for another three years.”

During the times stated above it will be necessary to restrict traffic movements along London Road using temporary traffic signals with a road closure notice on Torkington Road. As the work progresses any adjoining roads will also be restricted through closure notices prohibiting traffic entering and exiting onto both London Road and Torkington Road with signed diversions in operation during working times. 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, they may be restricted for certain periods as the work progresses.

    I live on the Race Course Estate off Torkington Road. If I come home between the hours of 8.00pm and 5.00am will I be able to drive onto the estate?

      You should be okay. The two main access roads to the estate, Highfield Rd & Sandringham Rd are not going to be restricted. The areas affected will have temporary lights, so, if, for instance, you work in Poynton then you may need to allow more time to get through those. But if you are coming from Marple there won’t be a problem. If you are coming from Stockport you may have to navigate the temporary lights depending on which way you come.
