Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

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.”
