[QUOTE=Serenity]A store Sainsbury's size was not needed. What were the planners thinking of. Yes they had the space to build such a store but surely they must have been aware that the A6 could not take the extra pressure and still funtion safely. They already had a congested main road but were given the permission to add to it further. Makes no sense to the word planning what so ever.[/QUOTE]

I believe a store of that size was needed, it's popularity alone is proof of that.

It's worth noting that many people are brand loyal so without that store the nearest Sainsburys stores are in Stockport centre and Macclesfield so from a pollution viewpoint, I travel a far shorter distance than I otherwise would do. I wouldn't shop in Asda if they were giving the stuff away for free.

Another point of note is that Sainsburys store was it's flagship store at the time of it's opening and had a lot of innovative things at the time (type 'Sainsburys Hazel Grove' into YouTube), big business doesn't spend money without reason and solid research.

I travel on the A6 each day and I genuinely do not view those lights as a particular concern. You can only plan things so far, most people are happier to sit in a car in traffic than they are to share a bus with strangers which is still stuck in the same traffic.

The workforce is gradually changing, 9-5 is becoming the exception rather than the norm, as a result traffic changes accordingly so I see things improving with time, especially when the link road is built!
