South East Manchester Multi-Modal Strategy – 2018 Public Consultation

From Monday 21st May 2018, through to Monday 2nd July 2018, we want to hear your views on the draft SEMMM Strategy and plans to continue improving transport for all across north Cheshire, Stockport and south east Manchester.


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.

The road is programmed to open in late Summer 2018.
