From the 7th March 2016, traffic management will be in place on the A6 between Norbury Hollow Road and Wellington Road in two phases.

This is to allow utility diversion for BT to be undertaken at the southern tie-in point for the new aligned section of the A6, currently under construction. The hours of work for the utilities companies will be as per the agreed hours of work for the A6MARR, Mondays to Fridays 7am until 6pm and Saturdays 8am until 1pm where applicable.
Further details of the traffic management that will be in place are as follows;

  • From 9.30am on 7th March 2016 to 9th March 2016, for 24 hours a day, two-way traffic signals will be in place whilst the pedestrian island on the A6 at this location is removed. By removing the pedestrian island and then narrowing the lane widths on the A6 we are able to create working room for the utility diversion works without the need for two-way traffic lights for the remainder of the works.
  • From 9th March 2016 to 24th March 2016, once the island is removed, traffic management will be a lane narrows system which will remain in place until this work is complete on the 24/03/2016.

Norbury Hollow Road will be closed from the entrance off the A6, Buxton Road, to the Middlewood Road/Pool House junction for the full duration of the works. A diversion will be in place via Middlewood Road, Park Lane, London Road North and A6, Buxton Road. Access will be in place for the dairy only.
During this time, the bus stop near to Norbury Hollow Road will remain in place.

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.

We appreciate that these works 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.
