Tackling Traffic Congestion and Improving Infrastructure

I have been campaigning for a Relief Road in Poynton for years, to ease the burden of high traffic volumes. The plan is for a two-mile stretch from the oil terminal to London Road near Adlington Golf Centre.

Combined with the Manchester Airport SEMMMS road, it should return the centre to low traffic volumes, even at the busiest times of the year.

I'm pressing the Department for Transport to start work on the project in 2020. The route is visible in the document attached below.

Please let me know using the survey below what you think of the relief road and other local issues.
