Good news on South Park Road junction

by Lib Dem team on 11 November, 2015

The Lib Dem team have long been working on what you would think would be an easy problem but has turned out to be anything but – keeping the grass cut at the junction of South Park Road with the M60 slip road so cars can get safely in and out with good sight lines.

The problem’s been that it’s a small area of grass that’s split between Highways England and Stockport Council. Over the last few years we’ve badgered both and had it cut back from time to time – and even done it ourselves!

Now we seem to have genuine progress: the Council has been in discussions with Highways England and it’s been agreed that Highways England will take on responsibility for the whole section.

There’s a clear intention from Highways England to either maintain it or replace the grass with something that won’t grow (tarmac/stones/etc.) but we’ll be chasing that up to ensure that what actually happens matches those good intentions.

    Replacing it with something that won’t grow would be the way to go. Thanks for efforts so far.

    I do plenty of critising on this forum – but credit where credit’s due- well done on this one.

    Well done! A quick moan – still hundreds of cars a week coming off Kingsway and M60 causing various issues for the residents.

    It’s been a long time coming and now that Highways England have agreed to take responsibility it will save me the trouble of cutting down the grass and weeds. I hope that they have the sense to tarmac the area which will save them time and money in the longer term.
