On the 17th June, the A555 westbound from the A34 to B5358 Wilmslow Road is planned to reopen following the completion of:

  • extensive drainage repairs at the Earl Road bridge; and
  • resurfacing of the A555 westbound between the A34 and B5358

Following this, works to the A555 eastbound carriageway will commence that will require the closure of the A555 eastbound between the A34 and B5358 Wilmslow Road from the 18th June until 3rd August 2018. The signed diversion route on site will be via B5358 Wilmslow Road northbound, B5094 Stanley Road eastbound and A34 southbound.


The works to be carried out under the closure include:

  • the construction of the shared use footway/ cycleway;
  • safety barrier installation;
  • parapet extension; and
  • resurfacing on the A555

The contractor, CMS, has worked with Stockport and Cheshire East councils to coordinate the works around other projects in the wider area to keep disruption to a minimum. We thank road users for their patience as the works progress and apologise in advance for delays to journeys caused by the forthcoming closure of the A555 eastbound from A34 to B5358 Wilmslow Road.
