Road in front of sta­tion to close

Stockport Express - - News -

A SEC­TION of the road in front of Stock­port Rail­way Sta­tion will close for six months as work on phase two of the Stock­port Ex­change de­vel­op­ment gets un­der­way.

Part of Sta­tion Road will close to traf­fic on Jan­uary 9 as the site’s hoard­ing line is ex­tended across the road, and will re­main closed un­til July.

Ve­hi­cles from the A6 will be able to get to the sta­tion via Rail­way Road, and a new turn­ing area with a bus stop and taxi rank will be cre­ated at the end of the road be­tween the sta­tion and multi-storey car park.

A pub­lic ex­hi­bi­tion out­lin­ing the works will take place at the sta­tion on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 7 be­tween 3pm and 6pm, and Fri­day, Jan­uary 8 be­tween 8am and 10am.

Stock­port Ex­change is part of the coun­cil’s ‘In­vest­ing in Stock­port’ pro­gramme and will in­clude a Hol­i­day Inn ho­tel, of­fice build­ing, re­tail space and pub­lic realm.

Coun­cil­lor Pa­trick McAu­ley, ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber for thriv­ing econ­omy, said: “The ben­e­fits Stock­port Ex­change will bring to Stock­port we hope will be sig­nif­i­cant, but there needs to be some changes that take place dur­ing the works.”
