Works to finish on Macclesfield walking and cycling route

Final works on a walking and cycling route start next week, as another council active travel scheme is completed.

The scheme via Hurdsfield Road and Black Lane, offers much-improved access from Macclesfield to one of the borough’s outstanding countryside amenities – the Middlewood Way. 

Completion works are due to start on Monday 19th February and will take around two weeks. Pedestrian and cycle access to the Middlewood Way will be maintained throughout. The works to realign kerbs, relocate drainage and construct the new footpath will take place at the section by the Tesco exit.

Highways colleagues return to the site on Sunday 24th March when the exit will be closed completely for motor vehicles through to Monday morning – approximately 12 hours to resurface the improved crossing and to install road markings.

Contractors will be off site before the Monday rush hour and appropriate signage will be in place. These works will all be completed while the store is closed.

This project has been substantially funded by Sustrans, the sustainable transport organisation with additional funding provided by the government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
