Romiley District Centre Improvements

Closes 11 Dec 2020

Opened 11 Nov 2020

Overview

Stockport Council is working hard with Transport for Greater Manchester to reduce air pollution and tackle climate change whilst also encouraging people to become more active. Part of this approach is making it easier for residents to increase the amount of walking and cycling they do on a daily basis.

Work has started on a Greater Manchester-wide programme to make journeys on foot or by bike much easier and more attractive. The Mayor of Greater Manchester has allocated £160m to the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund (MCF), made possible by the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund.

The Council has applied for funding to improve Romiley Village Centre, in particular by reducing traffic speeds, improving cycle facilities and providing better crossing points of the main road and at side roads. This Crossings Package of proposals considers responses to the large-scale engagement exercise recently undertaken on Romiley Active Neighbourhood, and will complement any proposals that may be taken forward by such a scheme.

The Romiley Village Centre proposals include:

  • A series of new and improved crossings and junctions, including Stockport Road / Compstall Road and side roads; and
  • A 20mph speed limit through the village supported by traffic calming measures.

Detailed scheme descriptions and drawings are shown on the following pages.

Stockport Council will not reply to all individuals but, as with the Active Neighbourhood engagement exercise, 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 any implementation.

If you have any questions about the proposals, please do not hesitate to contact the team on 0161 474 2299 or at romileycrossings@stockport.gov.uk

Please note these proposals, if approved and built, would replace the temporary ‘Safe Streets Save Lives’ measures recently introduced in the village.
