From 23rd November 2015, Woodford Road, Poynton is to be closed for a three week period (24 hours a day) as part of works to construct the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR).

The closure will be in place along the whole of Woodford Road, Poynton. A signed diversion route will be in place via Chester Road, London Road North and Dean Lane.  A map of the diversion route can be found online (PDF 430.74Kb).

During this time access to properties on Woodford Road will be maintained and businesses will still be open as normal.

The road closure is required for works to be undertaken by CLH-Pipeline System (formerly the Government Pipelines and Storage System).  Utility companies will also be carrying out utility diversion works while the closure is in place. In order to minimise duration Carillion Morgan Sindall (CMS) has co-ordinated the timing of the works by various utility companies. The closure and associated diversion route has been approved by the highway authority, Cheshire East Council.

We appreciate that this closure may cause inconvenience to local residents and users of Woodford Road and thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
