A556 Knutsford to Bowdon Environmental Improvement Scheme - Post-Consultation Update

Consultation responses are having a strong influence on the scheme design.  Thank you to all of you who took the time to write to us or the Highways Agency directly.  As a result the HA has made a number of changes to their preferred option.  The junction strategy adopted by the HA post-consultation is based on Option 1, Bridge Option B and includes junctions at Tabley, the A50 and at Millington. In the next few months they will carry out further work to develop this design in the detail required for the application for development consent.

Further information is available at www.highways.gov.uk/a556knutsfordbowdon.

The HA’s work to review consultation feedback includes looking at alternatives to the current A556 scheme to determine whether they would be viable.  These alternatives include modifications to the M6 at J20.  It is their current view that this scheme may deliver benefits in some circumstances but these are likely to be small compared to those of the proposed A556 scheme.
