Works start to improve traffic junction in Flixton

WORK has begun to improve the junction of Carrington Lane and Flixton Road in order to ease congestion and improve access to key sites such as the SAICA paper mill in Partington.

The scheme is expected to take around 10 months to complete and motorists are advised that work taking place on the road itself will begin on February 9.

Executive councillor Alan Mitchell said: “I am delighted to see work start on site. The existing junction has caused congestion issues for a number of years and it is vital that we tackle this now in order to assist motorists and improve access to key development sites in Carrington and Partington.

“There will be some disruption while these improvements are carried out and motorists should be mindful of possible delays in the coming months. I’d like to reassure local residents and those who commute through the borough that whilst journeys may prove more difficult in the short term, the end result will make a huge difference for everyone’s benefit.”

42 weeks of road reconstruction on a road that is already heavily overused means more stress for people driving through or living in Partington.

Why couldn't they just build a bypass?

i thought thats what all the roadworks was about not just an upgrade of the jumction, if it is just an upgrade of the junction why does it take so long for, either way i hope whatever they do they remember the thousands of cyclists that use the road and keep us safe by giving us a proper cycle lane

Certainly when this juction is upgraded they could design a seperate cycle lane as Mile Road is narrow enough right now.
