Poynton Town Council have been made aware of temporary road closures to facilitate Poynton Relief Road works.

Parts of the A523 London Road and Street Lane will see temporary closures to facilitate works on the Poynton Relief Road project. The closures are needed to allow road surfacing and white lining works.

Street Lane will be closed 24 hours a day at its junction with the A523 London Road from Monday 28 November, for about four weeks.

The A523 London Road will be closed overnight, between 8pm and 6am, from Adlington Business Park and just beyond the new Adlington roundabout from Monday 5 December, for about three weeks.

A signed diversion route will be in place and access will be maintained at all times for non-motorists, local residents and local businesses – including the Golf Centre, Travelodge and Starbucks. All works are subject to weather conditions.

Cheshire East Council would like to thank people in advance for their patience and apologises for any disruption this will cause.

When opened, the Poynton Relief Road, will relieve Poynton and neighbouring areas of high traffic volumes and congestion as well as improve air quality for residents and open up employment land. It is being developed by Cheshire East Council, working in partnership with Stockport Council and is being delivered by civil engineering contractors Graham.

The 3.5km road – to be named Roy Chadwick Way after the famous local Avro aircraft design engineer who created the Lancaster Bomber – of ‘Dam Busters’ fame – will include two overbridge crossings for use by walkers, cyclists and farm vehicles and a 3.5m-wide combined cycle and footway, which will run beside the length of the route in the western verge. The road is expected to open in early spring 2023.
