A555 MAELR/Hazel Grove and Poynton Bypass 14 May 2017

Construction of a new dual carriageway bypass from M60 j25, around the south of Hazel Grove, connecting to the existing A555; also a westward extension of the A555 to meet the M56 Manchester Airport spur road. This is a scaled-down version of plans drawn up in the 1970s for a motorway on the same line, becoming a grade-separated dual carriageway west from Hazel Grove. Its resurrection is due to the SEMMMS multi-modal study.
