A6 Disley improvements

We are continuing work to deliver improvements on the A6 Buxton Road through Disley as part of a package of works linked to the A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road.

 The scheme will deliver junction improvements in key locations. Features of the scheme include:

  • provision of new signalised junction at Redhouse Lane (works complete)
  • provision of new traffic signals on Jackson Edge Road (works complete)
  • new carriageway surfacing & road markings
  • improvements to existing kerb-lines & footways
  • provision of new advisory cycle lanes
  • signing upgrades and improvements
  • junction visibility improvements
  • formalising existing ‘on-street’ parking 
  • upgrading existing crossing facilities
  • provision of pedestrian refuge island

Schedule of planned work

The first phase of the improvements was completed in July, and works to deliver the second phase are scheduled to start on 2 October 2017. This work is planned to take 8 weeks to complete. 

We understand there is no right time to undertake this work, and this scheme has been carefully planned to minimise disruption.

General road closure information

  • we are working closely with local businesses that are likely to be affected by the works to ensure that disruption is minimised, and residents will be notified
  • some road closures are necessary to protect the safety of both members of the public and our workforce whilst we complete the most complex aspects of the scheme
  • where road closures are in place, diversion routes will be signed to assist in the movement of traffic while works progress
  • on site personnel will be on hand to provide help and advice to members of the public for the duration of the scheme and are the best way to find out more information about these works
  • access to emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times
