Public meeting in Adlington to debate Poynton by-pass
RESIDENTS in Adlington worried about the impact of the forthcoming Poynton Relief Road have called a public meeting to discuss their concerns.
Adlington Action Group - which is made up of residents and parish councillors - and are preparing a report on the impact of the proposed road for Cheshire East Council.
They have called a meeting to debate the issues at Adlington Primary School, Brookledge Lane, on Saturday January 30, from 10am and 2pm.
Poynton Relief Road will link the A6 with the Manchester Airport Relief Road (A6MARR).
The £30m road two mile highway aimed at relieving congestion in and around Poynton and improve links to Macclesfield to support economic, physical and social regeneration of the town.
Cheshire East Council is proposing the single carriageway to run south across the A5149 Chester Road, west of Lostock Hall Farm, east of Shirdfold Farm, through the golf course at Adlington Golf Centre, before connecting with a roundabout to the west of the Travelodge with links north and south to the A523 London Road.
The scheme also includes improvements to the junction with the A523 London Road including Adlington crossroads, Bonis Hall Lane, Issues Wood and the A523/Prestbury Lane.
There are also plans for a road bridge to allow the proposed relief road to pass beneath Chester Road, two pedestrian bridges and a three metrewide pedestrian and cycle way alongside the road.
Nancy Tennant, parish councillor, said: “The Action Group is hoping for a really good turn out to collect the views of as many residents as possible from all parts of the village. We need to ensure or lanes are safe for all road users besides vehicles.
“Many Adlington residents are concerned about the projected increase in traffic coming through the village which is expected when the bypass is completed.”
