Continuing our relationship with Cheshire East Council, we were awarded the £26.5m Poynton Relief Road contract. The programme involves the creation of a 3.5km long, two-way single carriageway road. We are also responsible for the upgrade of two off-site junctions at Adlington Crossroads and Bonis Hall Lane, both of which are situated along the A523 London Road.
Additional features include cycleway and footway facilities, two new accommodation overbridges, and balancing ponds for drainage.
As a central component of the South East Manchester Multi-Modal strategy, the project will relieve the existing Poynton town traffic and improve connectivity between Macclesfield, Stockport, Manchester Airport and the wider area.
The scheme will also deliver a range of complementary measures on the A523 London Road to Macclesfield, that address road safety and congestion while mitigating wider environmental impacts from traffic.

We are a member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme. This scheme aims to improve the image of the construction industry by following a Code of Considerate Practice, which covers a number of things including site safety and considering the impact of works on the local community.
There are no traffic management updates on the Poynton Relief Road at present.
