As part of the borough wide ‘One Stockport’ initiative, Stockport Council introduced a series of traffic calming measures in Gatley and other areas within Stockport. The measures we have implemented are to make the local areas safer for everyone who uses it using the government’s Safe Streets Saves Lives grant. 

The Network Management Section received a request from your Local Highway Ward Spokesperson to trial a part road closure on Stonepail Road, Gatley. With the introduction of a modal filter.

These temporary measures include stopping motor vehicles from using Stonepail Road as a through route, to do this we have placed planters and bollards on the southeast side of Stonepail Road. Maintaining access for pedestrians, cyclists, and wheelchair users. 

These were installed as temporary measures with a promise to consult on whether they should be retained.  The Network Management Section would now like to gain your feedback on the measures introduced on Stonepail Road, Gatley.

The feedback we receive will also help us to understand if the measures are making a positive difference, any alterations that we need to consider and inform how we deliver this type of scheme in the future.

Please provide any comments you wish to make on the proposals by completing this survey by 28th March 2022.
