We did

The Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration recommended to approve the implementation of the updated proposals in accordance with the proposed drawing. As part of a wider scheme, we also have a further consultation planned.


The Town Centre Access Plan (TCAP) is a package of measures transforming the accessibility and connectivity to and around Stockport. It is making it easier for everyone to travel and specifically aims to ease congestion and encourage walking and cycling. A key element of TCAP is improving access to public transport facilities and developments.

As part of the TCAP, Stockport Council is consulting on proposed changes to the A6/ Railway Road junction which include an extended two-lane approach on Railway Road and new crossing facilities.

Stockport Council will not reply to all individuals but will collate, analyse and consider all responses received and the feedback from the consultation will be used as part of the decision making process prior to the implementation of any scheme.

We would like your views on the proposals, a public consultation is taking place between 22nd July and 7th August 2020. Please consider the information provided on the following page, and indicate whether you are in support of the proposals by completing this consultation.
