From 1st February 2016 to 6th March 2016, temporary two-way traffic signals will be in place on the A6 between High Lane and Hazel Grove. This is to allow utility diversions for electricity, BT and gas to be undertaken at the northern tie-in point for the new realigned section of the A6, currently under construction.
Further details of the traffic management that will be in place are as follows:
- From 1st February 206 to 6th March 2016, two-way traffic signals in place from Carlton Place to just prior to Yew Tree Avenue. The traffic signals will be in place weekday off peak hours of 9.30am to 3.30pm and, when possible, Saturdays from 8am to 1pm.
- From 8th February 2016 to 6th March 2016, a full closure of Yew Tree Avenue will be in place which will mean that traffic cannot exit Yew Tree Avenue onto the A6. The diversion route will be via Alma Road which will be signed on site. Access to properties on Yew Tree Avenue will be maintained throughout the works. The closure will be in place for 24 hours a day.
During this time, the bus stop on the southbound side of the A6 adjacent to the Hazel Grove Golf Course entrance will be closed, however, a temporary bus stop will be provided approximately 50 metres north of the existing bus stop.
To minimise the duration of the works and disruption to the A6, CMS has coordinated the activities of various utility companies. All traffic management associated with the A6MARR is approved by the local highway authority (in this case, Stockport Council) so that is it coordinated with any other works taking place in the area to minimise disruption.
Once the traffic management on the A6 at the northern tie-in has been removed, works will start at the southern tie-in (close to the junction of the A6 and Norbury Hollow Road), again requiring 2 way traffic signals to be in place on the A6 from 7th to 24th March 2016. The details of the traffic management are currently being agreed and further information will be provided in due course.
We appreciate that this closure may cause inconvenience to the local community and users of the A6 Buxton Road and thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
