Poynton bypass

Postby gavin » Sun Nov 18, 2018 5:05 pm

Somewhere on this forum there is mention that the portakabins used as offices for the new A555 were going to be kept to be used as offices for the bypass from Adlington. Those portakabins have now gone so I assume also the hope of a new bypass for the foreseeable.

Anyone know anything different :?:

The bypass is going ahead. There will be a public enquiry from November 20th to 27th. CEC expect a contract to be awarded in mid-2019 with work commencing on site in late 2019 and the road opening in 2021. You can find more details here.

Lots of action yesterday 23rd on A523 near the Starbucks /ex little chef , workmen were cutting down all the trees and bushes where the relief road will eventually enter and exit London road near Street Lane.
Also at the other end on the Chester junction near the A555 all the trees and bushes were being cut down.

At last things are moving in the right direction :clap

Strange how these newts are so rare they need protecting but seem to turn up everywhere.

How Poynton has changed in my lifetime, Starbucks was a little petrol filling station when I were a young un , now it's a coffee shop shortly to be at the junction of the new Poynton bypass , the mind boggles :o

Just as an after thought I seem to remember it was cafe long before it was a filling station , Rafiki6 :?:
