High Peak residents heading into Stockport and Manchester are being warned of potential delays because of work on the Manchester Airport Relief Road.

Temporary traffic lights will be in operation 24 hours a day from 9.30am today (March 15) until March 19 on the A6 at Hazel Grove, adjacent to the Norbury Hollow Road junction. They are required while National Grid undertakes work as part of the construction of the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road.

Working hours will be 8am to 5pm, however, due to the nature of the works which require a trench to be dug in the road, the traffic lights will need to be in operation 24 hours a day. Members of the Carillion Morgan Sindall (CMS) Traffic Management team will be on site from 6.30am to 6.30pm to monitor the traffic lights and adjust the timings to best manage the queues in each direction. The traffic signals will be removed as quickly as possible once the works are complete.
