For those people who actually believe that HG will get a by-pass............... "321 back in the room"!

The costs spiral each year, the NIMBYS will start to shout,our hard working elected reprehensives will all say they support the road scheme, and MP Stutter will harp on about what he would do if the Lib Dems were in charge............ "321 back in the room"!

it seems to me that everybody assumes our traffic problems are caused purely by cars. has nobody noticed that if you get a bus and a truck side by side they take up more than two lanes, get two more coming the other way and the road comes to a standstill. we live on one of the busiest goods routes in the country and thats why we need a bypass, increasing public transport isn't going to deliver the bread to sainsburys or the fuel to shell and as far as single occupancy cars go, the buses are empty too because there are too many of them and they get stuck behind each other, then the drivers start overtaking each other and the problems get bigger and bigger!!!

I agree with you, the problem does expand beyond what we assume it is.

To expand on your 'what courses traffic' - that stupid van that parks on the A6, on double yellows to drop off washing machines to the electronics shop. Are they not able to park on the Bamboo's car park? or will that mess with their schedule?

And the 192? why does that only go to Stepping Hill now? it seems if you live past Stepping Hill you have to wait ages for one to go to Hazel Grove from Stockport, at least you can count the so called 192s that don't go all the way.

Another problem that courses traffic build up is when the buses that are early stop on side of the road and there can be 2/3 at any one time.

The bypass is a short term solution to a long term problem. Stockport council tax payers will still be repaying the 1billion cost of the bypass long after any kind congestion improvements have passed! I understand that it will join the A6 at Sainsburys - like we need any more traffic at that junction!

My understanding of the Sainsburys situation was that they would have an entrance at the back from the new road not directly on the A6, though it was so long ago that I looked I could be wrong. Can some one clarify please.

The A6(M) is but a distant memory. The dumbed down replacement is a standard dual carriageway. The route is from the end of the Manchester Airport Eastern Link Road (MAELR) from the A6 at Simpson's Bend to the M60 at Bredbury. What will end up at Sainsbury's is just a link road. That's if it ever gets built. There is a web page that gives the latest status of the (long delayed) proposals; this was last updated June 2007 :-( :

The A6 has always been a major highway and I know my long dead grandparents had been hoping for a bypass all through their lives.

As I understand it, a bypass has been promoted for well over one hundred years now, but to no avail - probably because we aren't in the London area.

A bypass was first recommended way before my Dad played out, as a young child, on Torkington Road - imagine that! He remembers the days that when a car passed, the kids could go out and collect the nuts and bolts that fell off as they drove up Torkington Road, for fun, cos most people didn't have cars then.

He used to catch the tram on the A6 to school. Yeah, he's getting old, but he's not 'that' old. Somehow, I think I will die too, before the A6 gets a bypass, cos lets face it, it doesn't affect anyone who doesn't live locally and Londoners don't give a damn, they have their Underground.

i was born in hazel grove in 1943, it was a small friendly village .I got married and had 4 children there .We left for Anglesey 25 yrs ago .We were waiting for a bypass then , it used to take me 20 min by car from the five ways to chapel str school , it was quicker to walk . my brother still lives there but i dont envy him . The council bought up property then to make way for the new road, i wonder what happened to that.

my son went to chapel st school 20 odd yrs ago, we lived the other end of the grove beyond the george& dragon and the traffic fumes then were horrendous, since emmission controls were brought in it's slightly better air quality but the increase in traffic is scary sometimes, especially when we're out with the grandkid's, and being a gentleman i usually walk on the kerbside of the pavement and risk having my head knocked off by a passing wing mirror on a truck or bus,why can't they mount the bloody things higher up on the cab instead of face height of a sagging old grandad.
BRING ON THE BYPASS BEFORE THEY REARRANGE MY FACIAL FEATURES!!!

p.s. there are those who say that might not be such a bad thing, who am i to go against public opinion...
