Banksmen will be in operation during works and Trail users may experience slight delays whilst machinery is moved, please see the following information and diversion: (Please Note: This diversion is NOT suitable for horse riders, this has been raised with our colleagues at Manchester Council and Highways England)



Town Centre works – Following completion of the emergency Gas works at King Street West / Chestergate, Stockport, works will start on BT diverting their services. The traffic signals (including signalised pedestrian / cycle crossing) will remain switched off with the right turn from Chestergate to King Street West (northbound) and straight ahead from Chestergate towards the bus depot movements banned.  A diversion will be signed up to the existing Toucan on King Street West in proximity to Heaton Lane roundabout. Within a week Stockport hope to be able to open the right turn from Chestergate to King Street West (northbound), however, the traffic signals will remain switched off with the pedestrian / cycle diversion in place.
