Roadworks
Topic posted by Herb ... dated:01 August 2007
Try roadworks for finding out future roadworks in the Trafford area. I know there has been forum items about roadworks before & this roadworks section vanished off Traffords website for several months, but it is now back, if it is any help to anyone.

Gmroadworks.org is good for finding out about current and planned roadworks in Greater Manchester.

Turns out that Station Road re-opened today, if anyone was wondering.

The big hole in Station Road has been filled in but not yet resurfaced. The road is still closed to southbound traffic. The lady in the fishmonger's reckons it won't re-open fully before Wednesday at the earliest. Buses are continuing to divert along Higher Road. The smaller buses like those on routes 18 and 84A seem to turn off onto Atkinson Road and then Gloucester Road. The bigger buses seen to continue along Higher Road and turn right onto Moss Vale Road.

I found these details but not sure what they are doing, although I will be amazed if it isn't to the detriment of the car. Probably a bus lane.

Hi, I have seen a sign at the roundabout next to Trafford Retail park that states that major roadworks will be carried out from the 08/02/16, Yet, I have searched on the Trafford Council website as well as a website for roadworks locally and found no information about it at all. 

Does anyone know any further information about what the roadworks will entail?

 I want find an alternative route to work and will end up going via Partington rather than Barton bridge if it is expected to be congested more than normal. 

Thanks

I also saw the sign on BDR, closed from 22nd April for a week...will bugg*r up my journey to work but I can go over Parkway instead

Why would BDR be shut. The work is going on on Traff blvd. BDR being shut will disrupt hundreds of businesses.

Yesterday (16/04/2014) I shopped at ASDA on Barton Dock Road, Urmston & drove past a sign that said that BDR would be closed for a week from 22/04/2014 but I can't find the Traffords website for this, even by using the link that I supplied in starting this forum item. Has anyone got a clue as to this?

It's all to do with the WGIS scheme. Western Gateway Infrastructure Scheme- a new link across the canal to the A57 and Port Salford, and new M60 junction works. New road will come in on Trafford Way next to the Chill Factore.

Andrew I'm so glad you mentioned the middle lane, I have had loads of abuse fired at me for doing it right!

Suspect it is works relating to Port Salford? The Peel timescales FAQ say M60 junction 10 works February 2013 – Summer 2013

AnotherPete, I simply followed the link in the original post to Trafford's website's roadworks page, which showed that nothing was planned.
 
Your link took my to Trafford street works page, so it seems that Trafford has abandoned roadworks in favour of street works. However that page shows that nothing is planned in the near future for Trafford Boulevard, to which the signs, by their placing, seem to refer. So, does anyone know what is actually planned to take several weeks to complete?

I just hope that when they are doing it they put white lines showing that when entering from the middle lane at the lights on Barton Road you should go onto the outside lane of Redclyffe Circle and not the middle lane as most people seem to do.

The first one seems to show carriageway resurfacing. Is it that bad there? Aren't there plans to remodel the entire junction soon? Seems a waste to do it twice, but I suppose if it is bad enough to need it now and the remodelling is some time off?

Edward - You haven't looked very hard!  I've found two on the website - depends which Barton Road you mean, either this one or this one.

Signs have appeared at Barton Road motorway roundabout and at the Trafford Centre main entrance warning of major roadworks from the end of May until August. There is nothing on Trafford Council's web site roadworks page about them, has anyone any idea what is planned? I have noticed extra security fencing has been erected around some of the vacant land near to the Swinging Bridge Premier Inn.

You would think some bright spark from the Urmston Advertiser would comment on this problem. It must be difficult for a reporter to read there is forum subject to help such a cause.
Don't say it; Sarcasm is the lowest form of whit.

I was talking to some of the workmen repairing the concreted sewer today. It seems that because of the depth of the sewer beneath the ground and the amount of other services under Flixton Road the easiest way for them to clear the blockage is to sink a second shaft then tunnel along the blocked length of the pipe. As the tunnel proceeds the sewer pipe and the concrete will be broken up with paving breakers and removed. Once cleared the blocked section will be replaced with a new pipe, the tunnel and shaft then being filled in, with a new manhole being installed at the site.
 
Quite an undertaking, I would not like the bill for it all!

I'm loving the quiet on Flixton Road, makes getting to the train station a lot easier.

I'm quite enjoying the peace and quiet on Flixton road. It reminds me of when I was a child and cars were less common.

Yesterday 29 th Feb I was told by an executive of the water company that the repairs would take until the end of March as new pipes will have to be laid. Builders of the new shopping development are the most likely people responsible for the mess.
