The new A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is now open for use.
A 20 year strategy that has been developed in the South East Manchester area. The road schemes proposed within SEMMMS include the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road, Poynton Relief Road and A6 to M60 Link.
KEY PROJECT: A6 TO MANCHESTER AIRPORT RELIEF ROAD (A6MARR)
The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road Scheme is planned to provide 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) of new 2-lane dual carriageway from the A6 near Hazel Grove (south east Stockport), via the 4 kilometres of existing A555 to Manchester Airport and the link road to the M56.
The scheme bypasses heavily-congested district and local centres, including Bramhall, Cheadle Hulme, Hazel Grove, Handforth, Poynton, Wythenshawe, Gatley and Heald Green.
The road is now open for traffic.
