It's been a long time coming, but the new A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is about to open. The project has not been without controversy. Construction began in early 2015 and long-suffering High Lane residents have put up with more than three years of construction work and its associated noise and inconvenience. The road has been designed to provide an East/West link across the conurbation, with the aim of removing traffic from already heavily congested routes. Various mitigation measures have been considered to try to ensure projected traffic increases have a minimal impact on the village.
