Advice for drivers

The A57 is expected to be congested and journey times will be slower especially in the Reddish and Gorton areas. Could you re-time your journey to avoid the lengthy delays? The quickest times will be before 6.30am, between 10.30am and 3pm and after 7pm.

Further journey time information will be updated once the work is underway. On the M60, Junction 24 is expected to be busier than usual. It may be quicker to leave via an alternative junction to reduce your journey time. Junction 27 (Stockport) and Junction 23 (Ashton-Under-Lyne) are options. Two Metrolink Park and Ride sites are available close to Junction 23.

Local trip times in the Gorton and Reddish areas are expected to increase. Walking and cycling may be quicker and healthier!

Bus

The 201, 204, 205, 206 bus services will still operate during the works but may be subject to delays. It may be quicker to take frequent bus services on parallel routes such as the 219 service on Ashton Old Road and the 192 service on Stockport Road.

Services may have to make short diversions during the works in order to stick to the timetable. This information will be available by following bus operators on social media.

Cycling and Walking

During the works local and shorter trips may be quicker by walking/cycling.

This is especially true in the case of Gorton and Reddish areas. Leave the car at home and enjoy a brisk walk!
