Before and after school congestion warning

The graph below compares September 2020 vehicle journey times (when there were less people travelling on the network due to COVID-19 restrictions) with September 2019 data.

Journey time data shows that congestion is worse on the roads surrounding the school, especially at the start and end of the school day on B5169 Broadstone Road between 8-8.30am and 2.30-3.30pm.

This could be due to more students arriving and departing to schools via car, as well as other congestion reasons such as roadworks and incidents.

To minimise this increased congestion spike, students and parents are encouraged to have a look at the public transport alternatives and dedicated school services below.

Commercial bus services

Stagecoach service 7 - Ashton-under-Lyne - Droylsden - Reddish - Stockport

Students can board and alight both services on Stockport Road in Reddish, a short walk from the school.

Duplicate bus services

Capacity on the commercial bus network continues to be significantly reduced due to coronavirus social distancing measures.

TfGM are working with operators to run around 300 additional bus journeys each weekday across the region to help students using public transport get to and from school and college safely.

Duplicate bus journeys exclusively for school and college students run behind the original scheduled service at set times, with the usual route number starting in ‘S’ to show they are school services.
