Stockport Times West - - VIEWS -

IN my youth, I can re­mem­ber the River Mersey flow­ing through the cen­tre of Stock­port with shops on both sides of the river.

What did we do? We built over the river and cre­ated Mersey­way. Wouldn’t it be an im­prove­ment to re­verse this and re­turn to a town with the fa­mous River Mersey flow­ing through the cen­tre of it?

You would have shops, bars, and pave­ment restau­rants on ei­ther side of the river and what an at­trac­tion that would be. Run the free bus to and from the tram ter­mi­nus at Parrs Wood and watch the vis­i­tors flood in to the town.

I know it will not hap­pen but build­ing over the river was very short sighted. Mr G Knowles Of­fer­ton
