Massie Street Cycle Cut Through

Closed 29 Oct 2023

Opened 20 Sep 2023


Stockport Council is consulting on a proposal to provide a segregated cycle route between Ashfield Crescent and Massie Street car park in Cheadle.

A number of Cheadle Towns Fund schemes which included a route for cyclists utilising the quiet roads of Brookfield Road, Oak Road, Whitegates Road, Ashfield Road and Ashfield Crescent was implemented in 2022 and earlier this year. This scheme has been implemented with the exception of the Massie Street car park cycle cut through. Additional funding has been secured through ITB Phase 2 and we are now proposing to implement the last section which was previously removed due to budget constraints.  


To provide the extended cycle route it is therefore proposed to introduce the following measures, these are shown on the plan (5224_06_F_001) and are described below:

  • A new 3.0m wide two-way segregated cycle track through the existing closure at the western end of Ashfield Crescent to provide access to Massie Street car park.
  • The existing parent and child bay relocated adjacent to the existing footpath.
  • Provision of an uncontrolled crossing point to allow for safe crossing of the proposed cycle track.
  • Installation of No Waiting at Any Time Restrictions at the western end of Ashfield Crescent to protect the segregated cycle route.
  • Replacement and relocation of cycle stands close to the proposed cycle track.
  • Relocation of the recycling and charity collection bins to replace the existing cycle stands.
  • Introduction of cycle markings and signs within Massie Street car park to highlight the cycle route.
