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.


The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road Scheme is planned to provide 10 kilometres 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.

Over the Easter Weekend 2016, the A6MARR Hazel Grove to Buxton Railway Line Bridge was successfully slid into place. The three films below show the bridge slide from start to finish.
