Public Consultation on Proposed Extension to Earthworks Mounds 11th November to 2nd December

During the construction of the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR), the contractor, Carillion Morgan Sindall, has identified an opportunity to provide additional screening of the new road by new or extended earthwork mounds (also known as bunds) in locations across the scheme.  The A6MARR Project Team would like to seek the views of residents of adjacent properties to these proposed extended and new bunds prior to the submission of planning applications to the Local Planning Authorities, Cheshire East, Stockport and Manchester City councils.

You may be aware that in the A6MARR planning application it stated that the scheme design achieved an earthworks balance i.e. any earth that needed to be dug out during construction could be placed elsewhere on the scheme in the form of earthwork bunds. However, following further assessment of the ground conditions subsequent to the planning application being approved, a change in the construction methodology has been required, meaning that more earth has become available to provide additional screening to adjacent properties.

In addition to providing additional screening, the extension of the bunds allows more material can be retained on site, thereby mitigating the traffic and environmental impacts of transporting the large volumes of material off site by the local road network.

The bunds will be grassed over and landscaped to provide appropriate visual mitigation. Where possible, the planting on the extended bunds will be as per the landscaping proposals submitted as part of the original planning application for the A6MARR (see A6MARR.stockport.gov.uk).  Landscaping proposals for the new bunds are currently being developed and will be informed by the feedback received as part of this consultation.

Drainage provision will be reviewed and appropriate drainage designed and constructed.

Bund Descriptions and Drawings – Styal Road to Wilmslow Road

The location of the bunds is shown in the location plan. With reference to the plan, a description on the bunds is provided in the table below.

Site Description
1 Site located north-east of proposed A6MARR-Styal Road junction.

Proposed new earth mounding (bund) designed to avoid new drainage attenuation tank and existing trees and vegetation.  Proposed earthwork mound up to 4.0m in height over the existing ground level.

15 Site located to the east of A6MARR-Styal Road junction, adjacent to the electricity substation.

Proposed new earthwork mound to extend the A6MARR embankment to fill area of land adjacent to the A6MARR carriageway.  Mound height up to approximately 5.6m above existing ground level.

20 Site located to the south-east of Styal line Railway Bridge, adjacent the south side of the A6MARR carriageway.

Proposed to re-profile and increase the height of the approved earthwork mound that is located here to screen views of the scheme.  Proposed height increase to the approved mound of approximately 1.4m.

18 Site located north-east of Styal golf Course, south of the A6MARR, and immediately east of Yew Tree footbridge.

Proposed mound comprises an extension to the already approved earthwork which forms the approach to the footbridge extension and provides screening of the scheme.  The mound would be increased in height by up to about 3.4m over that currently approved and would be re-profiled to make it more natural in form.

19 Site located north-east of Styal golf Course, north of the A6MARR, and immediately east of Yew Tree footbridge.

Proposed mound comprises an extension to the already approved earthwork which provides screening of the scheme.  The mound would be increased in height by up to about 1.5m (at the eastern end) over that currently approved and would be re-profiled to make it more natural in form.
