Work creating a new direct link road bridge across the River Mersey has begun in Stockport town centre.

The bridge linking Swaine Street with Astley Street east of Stockport viaduct will provide a two-way link for buses, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians between the A6 and the planned transport interchange via Heaton Lane.

Funded as part of the Greater Manchester Growth Deal programme, Mersey Bridge is due to open to traffic in 2019.
