A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road on track

by Iain Roberts on 13 October, 2015

Councillors from Cheshire East, Stockport and Manchester had an update briefing on progress with the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road yesterday.

The project is on schedule to complete in 2017. As you’d expect in any large project of this sort, some elements are taking a little longer than planned for, others a little less time, but overall it’s on track.

Work is continuing to move great crested newts and badgers, with over 30km of newt fencing put up. There have been some archaeological finds (no major hoards of Roman gold, I’m afraid). The archaeologists are coming in and doing their stuff where things turn up.

Where work is starting at a new location, residents in that area are informed and there’s a local meeting show what’s going on.
