Newland Road Quiet Lane

Closed 29 Oct 2023

Opened 29 Sep 2023


Following the implementation of a number of Cheadle Towns Fund schemes, Stockport Council is consulting on a proposal to provide a traffic calmed route along Newland Road.


A total of £13.9m was awarded for the development of a new railway station for Cheadle and active travel proposals to improve connectivity to Cheadle High Street/the new station.

Since the implementation of the Cheadle Towns Fund schemes which provide links between Queen Gardens, Oak Road and towards Cheadle village, additional funding has been secured through ITB Phase 2 to extend and connect these existing schemes.  This consultation letter relates to a proposal to introduce a quiet lane with traffic calming features along Newland Road.

To provide the desired quiet route on Newland Road into Abney Hall Park and link the recently implemented pedestrian and cycle scheme on Queens Gardens, it is proposed to introduce the following measures. These are shown on Dwg No. 5224-06-100-01 and 02 and are described below:

  • 5 no. speed humps to reduce vehicular speeds along Newland Road.
  • An Abney Hall Park entrance sign located on the eastern side of Newland Road, close to the junction with Manchester Road.
  • 2 no. Quiet Lane signs at either end of the route.
