The A34 study Keith and the Lib Dems have been calling for is moving a step closer.
“We think we have agreement from Stockport, Cheshire East and TfGM for the study to go ahead.” said Keith. “It’s absolutely essential it does. With thousands of new homes being build and the planned Poynton Relief Road likely to add to the traffic coming down the A34, we will only find an answer to the traffic chaos by taking a proper look at the whole area.”
The Lib Dems have worked to improve the Kingsway junction over the last few years, making a number of improvements that have at least stopped traffic queues getting much worse, even though the number of cars has gone up by 20%.
“We live in a popular area with high employment. People need to get to work, to school and to the shops. We can’t wish those cars off the road, so we need to improve the transport network so we can all get to where we want to go without everything grinding to a halt.” Keith said.
An original study had been promised to former MP Mark Hunter and was planned to go ahead in the Summer, but after the General Election and with a new MP for Cheadle, Highways England changed their minds and ditched the study.25 Comments
