New relief road now open on the A6 in Hazel Grove

The relief road that we have been anticipating for months.. Wait years! Has finally been opened just South of Hazel Grove past the Police Station.

The road looks great and feels great to drive down, and it should help relieve a lot of traffic during busy hours – especially once the main section of the Airport relief road has been completed.

The Airport Relief Road will join onto this new road, you can see the junction mid-way down on the video below – this will then go underneath the old high lane & underneath the railway, returning to ground level before a large roundabout which will be built in-between Brookside Garden Centre & Fiveways.

This is due for completion later this year, but wouldn’t hold your breath for these completion dates folks!
