Stop the A6-M60 Bypass: save Stockport’s beautiful Goyt Valley and green spaces
Stockport Council will soon take a fateful decision on whether to endorse a Business Case for the four-and-a-half mile, £600 million A6 to M60 Bypass.
The dual-carriageway will devastate one of Stockport’s treasures, the Lower Goyt Valley, as well as the beautiful Poise Brook Valley and green spaces in Offerton, Hazel Grove and Lower Bredbury.
Along the route, residents’ quality of life will suffer from noise, disturbance, visual intrusion and increased pollution.
The Bypass itself is likely to be plagued by congestion. Roads leading to it will be jammed at peak hours.
Yet many councillors including those from areas along the route intend to support the Bypass. We have very little time left to stop them voting to commit a terrible act of vandalism. Please sign this petition and ask your friends to add their support.

Please stop Stockport Council’s plans to build the A6 to M60 bypass. The dual carriageway would cause irreversible damage to the borough. It would devastate the beautiful Lower Goyt Valley close to the town centre and ruin the Poise Brook Valley. Green spaces across Offerton, Hazel Grove and Lower Bredbury would be destroyed and residents’ quality of life would suffer. Places of beauty, peace and unpolluted air close to where people live are invaluable for physical and mental health. The spending of nearly £600 million on the bypass would be a terrible misuse and waste of taxpayers’ money. I appeal to you to abandon this destructive project.
