Town Centre Access Plan

2. Project information

The Town Centre Access Plan (TCAP) has a number of benefits for Stockport including improved access to and around the town centre, to the M60, the rail station, and to key sites within the town centre. It is also improving access to the town centre from surrounding residential areas, making it easier for people to access shops, services and leisure facilities whether cycling, on foot or as a motorist.

Importantly, as well as improving access, investments will also help reduce the impact of traffic congestion and improve the efficiency and reliability of the highway network, bringing significant benefits for businesses, residents and visitors alike.

TCAP is a vital component of the investment work underway in Stockport and is central to our ambitious plans for the redevelopment of the town centre.

£1 billion investment is currently underway in Stockport with projects including Redrock and Stockport Exchange being delivered. Also, works at Stockport interchange, Merseyway and the Market Place.
