The closure will be in force along the A6 through Disley.

A section of a busy road through Disley is due to be closed to traffic on two consecutive Sundays for roadworks.

The A6 Buxton Road will be shut on July 9, and again on July 16, for resurfacing and relining between its junctions with Jacksons Edge Road and Greenshall Lane.

Cheshire East Council has said the closures will be in operation from 9am until 11pm.

An official signed diversion will be in place via Macclesfield and Buxton using the following routes: A6, A523, A537 Cat and Fiddle, A54, A53, A6, also operating in reverse. The route can also be viewed here.

Local businesses remain open as usual, and emergency access will be maintained at all times.

Redhouse Lane in Disley will be shut between its junctions with Duddy Road and the A6 from Monday July 10 to Friday July 14, with a diversion via Hague Bar and New Mills.

The Disley highway improvements are part of a wider package of works by Cheshire East council to mitigate the impact of the new 10km A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road scheme.

These include improved surfacing on the eastern arm of the A6, with cycle lanes in both directions. There will be crossing points, controlled and uncontrolled, on the western arm of the trunk road, improved road markings and improved visibility from side roads. Traffic lights are being installed at Redhouse Lane and bus stops being relocated to maintain safety at junctions.

The programme of improvement works will continue into late October, but will be suspended during the August holiday period.
