Council Traffic

Just seven roads in Sale will be repaired as part of Trafford Councils £4 million highways improvement programme

By Barbara Metcalfe at

There are just SEVEN ROADS in the Sale area which will be repaired by March as part of the £4m improvement programme announced by Trafford Council.

The roads locations which cover Sale and its wards have apparently been identified by residents reporting issues directly to the council, as well as “rigorous and continuous highway monitoring programme”

The seven roads compare with 18 in Altrincham and it’s wards and 19 in Timperley. All are expected to be finished by the end of March this year.
According to the Trafford website the county network spans over 2000 kilometres, with their responsibilities covering nearly 300 highway structures and just under 28,000 street lights to tend.   So these are the roads in this area:

Sale Ward

Ashton Lane

Glebelands Road junction

Norris Road

South Grove

Temple Road

Washway Road – A56

Priory Ward

Poplar Grove

Here its Sale Today we ran a number of articles about the potholes currently causing motorists and cyclists real problem in the Sale area. We heard from many people living here, and we are sure residents from more than seven roads complained about the state of the roads.  So what do you think? Has the council identified the roads currently most in need of work?

The above locations will be treated by the end of March, subject to weather conditions.

Trafford has said that further improvements are planned from April onwards as part of its 2018/19 road investment programme, and we’ll bring you details of those when they are announced.

The additional funding has been generated by a higher than anticipated take-up of the Council’s green waste collection service this year, plus increased income from its shares in Manchester Airport.
