A57 M1 to Todwick Crossroads 1 March 2012

Upgrade of the existing A57 from single to dual carriageway between M1 J31 and Todwick crossroads (A57/B6463 junction). The improvements will start at a point 400 m to the east of J31, where the current dual carriageway ends. The Todwick crossroads will be replaced by a five-arm roundabout.

The aims of this scheme are to improve safety (this road has dangerous bends and a poor accident record), and increase capacity.


A57 Mottram - Tintwistle Bypass 2 July 2011

Construction of a new partially dual-two lane bypass for the towns of Mottram in Longdendale, Hollingworth and Tintwistle. The route will carry the A57 and A628, carrying Trans-Pennine traffic between Sheffield and Manchester, and can be considered a direct extension of the M67. The route will not be grade-separated.
