RIVER SHOULD FLOW AGAIN
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
