Is that winter at the beginning of 2018 or at the end?

11th June, as the A555 is reopened after 17 weeks of closure, to rectify unexpected settlement; both works to be carried out at the same time ie settlement problem & finishing the new road.
Will be a massive change to open the whole of the new road after 17 weeks of closure and then only minutes from Poynton to the airport.
Once the final stretch from the old little chef is in place late 2018 there should be brushwood blowing through Poynton Town & the roundels...

I think you mean Sagebrush ? But rather that than 40ton 'artics' scuffing their way round the tight turn from L Rd North to Chester Road causing untold damage to what should be a pretty 'village' centre. Let's get rid of the 'artics' (unless of course they are coming to top up our Morrisons, Waitrose & Aldi!!!!).

Massive change. According to Google it currently takes 20 minutes to get to the airport from Poynton (on the fastest route), which seems to be about right to judge from the taxis I've taken there. The new road will remove 4 minutes of that through Heald Green, although maybe a minute or 2 will be added back on to that because of the extra waiting time at the new Chester Road traffic lights and roundabout. So maybe 3 minutes saved. Massive.

The Little Chef to Chester Road section won't open until 2020 at the earliest I'm afraid. The only reason tumbleweed might be blowing through Poynton in 2018 is because it has been killed off by the pollution and is being blown around by the wind-front of the construction lorries belting past.

The business case for the Poynton Relief Road suggested that traffic might fall by 20-25% in Poynton by the way. That might be enough to make the traffic flow a little better at rush hour, but any noticeable difference will be fairly short term. It is really intended to help Macclesfield grow, not give relief to Poynton.

& by then there'll be 20-25% more cars due to new builds & increase in cars per house!!

Firstly ur not my uncle. At the point of post it was poss then came the total fu*k up of the previous contractor who didn’t protect the drainage & present hopeless contractors. Was looking at the situation from my xperience of roads/sewers construction the contract at the time could & should have been completed on time, not nearly a year late! What’s your qualified experience? bugger all I guess

I always thought you were a good, sensible poster....I'm afraid my opinion is rapidly changing.
