Wellington Road South (Between Exchange Street and Heaton Lane) (24th July until 7th October)
Posted Thursday, 13th July 2017 at 08:57 AM
From Monday 24th July essential repair works will take place on the bridge that carries the A6 in Stockport town centre between Exchange Street (Garrick Theatre) and Heaton Lane. This means that this section of the road will need to be closed to traffic, in both directions, for up to 12 weeks. The works are needed to address current maintenance issues and prolong the bridge’s life.
The transpeak service to Manchester will divert from the A6 at Exchange Street, continue through Stockport Bus Station, Mersey Square and return to the A6 near Debenhams.
Due to the increase in diverted traffic in central Stockport, it is anticipated that the Skyline 199 and 392 services will be delayed.
