I would be interested to hear the answer to this but below are my recollections of events at the time.

To get planning permission for a superstore on an already heavily congested section of the A6, Sainsburys had to agree that there would be no entrance from the A6 and a dedicated route would be part of the construction. The store would actually have faced the other way. Weeks before opening, Hazel Grove was thrown into chaos as all of a sudden roadworks popped up overnight in various places along the A6 and closing the Commercial Road junction. My ten minute daily commute to Heavily suddenly became an hour and twenty minutes. A whole new junction seemed to appear and as the boards hiding the Sainsburys development came down it revealed a store facing the A6 with its only entry also off the A6. This coincided with a substantial "environmental financial gift" from Sainsburys to Stockport Council - read in to this what you will, i know what I think as i see the village i have lived in for 42 years drown in traffic, sickened
