Cheshire East have made an interim appointment of Graham Construction as the contractor to build the new Poynton Relief Road. This will run from the A555 (near Chester Road) to London Road in Adlington, by the Travelodge. The new road will be just under 2 miles long, with a combined cycle path and footway. 

However, a court case has been brought by a landowner, which is due to be heard early next year. This must be decided before a final decision can be made. If this is resolved, major works are planned to start in July 2020, with completion in late 2021.
