A6/MARR Mitigation works – Latest update from Cheshire East

Disley Parish Council has received an update from Cheshire East Highways regarding the A6/MARR mitigation works.  This incudes details of the work to be undertaken and the traffic management measures to be used.  The full statement appears below:

“The works to implement mitigation measures through Disley, connected to the A6 Manchester Relief Road, starts on Monday 5th June and will last until late October although works will be suspended throughout August.

The feedback received following the Public Engagement in March has been considered and some changes have been made to the scheme including

  • Relocating pedestrian refuge island to the north side of Light Alders Lane / Coppice Avenue;
  • Amending through lane widths at Light Alders Lane / Coppice Avenue junction and Lyme Park junction to be minimum 3.0m
  • Retaining the bus stops in their current locations either side of Dryhurst Lane with additional localised footway widening
  • Removing proposed parking outside the Springfield Allotments
  • Improved sight stopping distances at the Allotments bend by use of road markings
  • Extending parking bays where possible
  • Omitting the Give Way and turn lane arrows at the minor side roads and accesses to the east of the Esso Garage.
  • Will be prioritised for future trial of Air Pollution-reducing paving material at Redhouse Lane junction
  • Improved cycle lane marking from Fountain Square to Stockport Boundary

The need for the Signals at Redhouse Lane has been fully considered and their implementation is necessary as part of the overall scheme.

Traffic Management will be in place to protect the safety of the public and our workforce. Our works have been scheduled to ensure disruption is kept to a minimum and peak travel hour during the week remain unaffected.

There will be two one day road closure periods on 9th and 6th July whilst carriageway resurfacing is undertaken at Redhouse Lane. Details of the diversion route will be available closer to the time on http://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/highways_and_roads/roadworks/latest-roadworks.aspx and affected properties will be notified in advance.

Any queries can be directed to our Customer Contact Centre at 0300 123 5020 or by email cheshireeasttraffic@cheshireeast.gov.uk.”
