Alderley Edge Traffic Calming Measures

Following a consultation in August 2021, we are continuing to install traffic calming measures in Alderley Edge.

A 20mph zone and traffic calming features are being added in Alderley Edge Village centre and the surrounding area which will help to reduce unsafe speeds in the area. 

What is happening

The works started on 23 January 2023 and will be completed on 5 March 2023 on London Road. Work is progressing well and the following closures will be taking place to enable us to complete the work:

  • Road closure
    Closed at all times for 6 days during the school half term from 20- 26 February
    Ryleys Lane from Chorley Hall Lane to Ryleys Lane junction  
    For the installation of traffic calming measures and lining.
  • Road closure
    Sunday 5 March (08:00 – 17:00)
    Ryleys Lane Junction to Davey Lane
    To complete final stage of installation of traffic calming measures and lining.

Due to the forecasted weather conditions on 18 February, the works planned for this date have been postponed. London Road, from Congleton Road to Wilmslow Road at the junction of Ryleys Lane will be closed in the evenings of week commencing 27 February to complete lining work.

The 20mph zone details

The improvements will introduce:

  • a 20mph zone which will be supported by new signage
  • surface treatments and road markings
  • raised pedestrian crossings in key locations throughout the village
