About The New A556

Many of you will already know there are huge improvements being constructed from Lymn roundabout all the way through to the M6 at Junction 19. This is being done to divert traffic from the A556 which is mostly at a standstill during the rush hour and incredibly busy at most times of the day.

The A56/A556 takes traffic from Manchester through Altrincham, and off the M56 through Bucklow Hill and Mere and onward to the M6 and of course off the M6 through Altrincham. The main reason that it gets so clogged up. The new motorway spur will divert traffic west of the current road forming a short piece of motorway joining the M56 with Junction 19 of the M6.  Take a look at the video below which explains the route:

The first part of the project, the opening of the new A556, is due to be completed at the end of March 2017, and according to the website, and as can be seen from the changes to the roads now, they are well on course for that. Follwing the opening the currect A556 will be ‘detrunked’, which means it will go down to two lanes, incorporating a cycle lane and bridal path. All of which will significantly reduce the traffic and the noise from that part of Mere. No doubt that will be a relief to the house owners along that stretch who have had to put up with a bigger and bigger car park every morning and evening.

We hope it all goes well and lots of money is raised along the way!
