Work starts on £33.6millon A34 Corridor scheme

Work will start next week on the £33.6million scheme to improve connectivity along the A34 corridor.

The government announced in the Autumn that the scheme had been given the go-ahead for the project which will create new opportunities for clean, active travel for our residents and businesses along the A34 corridor.

Contractors will start work on the first two schemes on Tuesday, April 2, near Gatley Road and Broadway.

These improvements are part of the wider scheme that will also deliver improved access to the Cheadle Royal Business Park, the Stanley Green business area, a designated walking and cycling route along the A34 and include a new pedestrian subway for pupils and staff at Kingsway School.

The council will be minimising the amount of carbon used during the construction process as well trying to improve biodiversity by planting new trees and improving habitats along the route.

Residents can keep up to date with all the latest project information on our dedicated A34 page.
