Across the borough there are a number of roadworks.
For more details on Stockport town centre roadworks please see the SMBC website
More locally, there are temporary traffic lights on Glossop Road to repair a broken retaining wall. Due to finish 23rd Feb
From 5th to 16th February, Longhurst Lane near Cataract Bridge will see temp lights too whilst flood drainage problems are rectified.
Windlehurst Road is having electricity cables put in between Ridge Crescent and Torkington; due to complete 1st March, there will be temp lights here too.
And finally Church Lane Marple (between Stockport Road and Leigh Av) will see a new electricity cable installed between 26th Feb and 2nd March.
Hollins Green Road (off Station Road) will see double yellow lines soon to prevent parked cars choking access to the first narrow part of that road.
All 3 councillors from Marple North have met to try and alleviate the Town St bottleneck at rush hour.
And as of today, the Labour exec member for roads has agreed that car park charges near Marple and Romiley stations will not be implemented in the next council budget. Any future proposed changes have proper consultation with residents and groups.
Marple has some new mobile speed cameras that can help in reducing speeds. They are currently up at the first site on Arkwright Road/Oldknow Road.4 Comments
