A Stockport Council survey has shown that 70% of local residents are in favour of building the new A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road.
Working with Cheshire East and Manchester, Stockport Council sent out over 85,000 consultation surveys on the various options for the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road. In addition, the consultation was widely advertised and available online through the website and social media.
The three local authorities will vote on the preferred route being drawn up following the consultation, with a further consultation being held on the preferred route.
The current target is to complete the road in 2017.
The A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road will take traffic off our local roads and generate up to 5,000 new jobs, making an important contribution to Stockport’s economic growth.
The survey responses show approximately 70% in favour of the road, 10% against and 20% having no view.
