Feasibility study commissioned for Stockport relief road
Stockport Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) have commissioned consulting engineers to undertake a feasibility study for the proposed A6-M60 relief road.
The scheme is part of the South East Manchester Multi Modal Strategy (SEMMMS) programme.
The feasibility study will be carried out by the Manchester office of WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff and take a year to complete.
In the March 2015 budget statement the government granted £350,000 to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority for a contemporary review of the case for the A6-M60 relief road, one of four relief road schemes recommended in the SEMMMS strategy.
WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff’s transport and environmental teams will examine the potential environmental impact, congestion relief and include a cost/benefit analysis of creating a relief road from A6 Hazel Grove junction to the M60 Bredbury intersection. The proposed new road also would provide a link from the Manchester Airport Relief Road scheme, currently under construction, to the motorway.
