Lib Dem Campaign Success: Cleaner Viaduct Coming

Work will finally be undertaken to remove the weeds from Stockport's historic Viaduct

Stockport Lib Dems are letting residents know about the impending night time closure of a section of the M60 motorway.

The closure is because Network Rail is undertaking maintenance work on the famous Stockport Viaduct.

Part of the work is to remove vegetation which has been growing from the viaduct, something local Lib Dems have been campaigning to remove for some time.

The motorway will be closed on the clockwise section between Junctions 26 and 1 and anti-clockwise between Junctions 1 and 27 during the hours 10.00pm-5.00am between October 3rd-31st.

The work is being carried out at these times to avoid disruption during the day.

Lib Dem Councillor Iain Roberts, the Council’s chief on transport matters, said: “Stockport Viaduct is an iconic regional landmark and a fantastic example of 19th century engineering which has stood the test of time.”

“We would like to thank road users for their patience while this work is carried out and ensure them that everything is being done to minimise any disruption.”
