A560 & B6104 Corridor Improving Journeys

Closed 24 Mar 2024

Opened 26 Feb 2024


Stockport Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) aim to improve journeys on the route between Stockport Town Centre and Woodley, delivering benefits for residents by making sure they are better connected so they can access jobs, education, and training more easily.  

The project is part of major investment across the whole 330 bus route between Stockport and Ashton via Hyde and Dukinfield which will see improvements to bus stops, junctions, crossings, and access. 

These proposals will help improve access to bus stops and help those walking, wheeling and cycling to cross this busy route. 

Improvements are proposed along the route on Great Portwood Street, Carrington Road, Stockport Road West, Stockport Road East and Hyde Road. Our proposals for this part of the route include two new and two upgraded crossings, an improved traffic signal junction, bus stop improvements and raising side road junctions to make crossing them easier.  

In addition to these works we are looking at a number of signalised junctions and crossings which are proposed to have existing signal equipment upgraded to provide priority for late running buses. This will provide journey time benefits for bus passengers by minimising delays at traffic signals. 

We want to know what you think of our ideas to improve journeys and would appreciate it if you take the time to look at the details below and give your feedback.

The improvements are being developed by the Council and TfGM using money from the Government’s City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS)
