Station Road, Town Centre Walking and Cycling Proposal

Closed 12 Nov 2023

Opened 24 Oct 2023


In September 2021, proposed walking and cycling improvements on Station Road in Stockport Town Centre were approved. The previous design incorporated a segregated pedestrian and cycle crossing (Tiger crossing), tying into a segregated route along the Bridgescape which leads to the Interchange.

Since the approval of the original design, some design changes have occurred following a review of traffic and speed survey data and on carriageway and bridgescape space constraints. This has led to a full design review of the scheme and therefore a new public consultation is required.  

The scheme has been developed and funded under the Mayoral Challenge Fund (MCF) budget which supports active travel proposals to improve connectivity between the Interchange and Stockport Railway Station and Stockport Exchange.

To provide this desired walking and cycling connection, it is proposed to introduce the following measures on Station Road. These are shown on Dwg No. D_0279B_0000_SK06 and are described below:

  • Zebra crossing on a raised traffic calming feature on Station Road.
  • Painted on carriageway cycle symbols to alert motorists to the presence of cyclists.
  • Short section of shared pedestrian and cycle area (due to space and design constraints) on the footway tying into the segregated pedestrian and cycle route along the Bridgescape. 
  • Provision of two traffic calming features along Station Road.
  • Provision of a 20mph zone.
  • No changes to the existing taxi rank and on street waiting / loading / parking restrictions.
