Hardy Lane Junction to be reopened
I am told that the Hardy Lane/Barlow Moor Road junction will be reopened around March 7th for approximately 6 months. The junction was originally due to be reopened on the 11 February, which was then postponed until 18th February; however due to unforeseen circumstances it has been pushed back to March.
The closure of this junction has created a significant amount of traffic chaos in this part of Chorlton and it's reopening (even for a relatively short period) will be welcomed.
The reopening will entail the Closing off of the Cundiff Road chicane which will stop motorists from exiting Barlow Moor Road via Cundiff Road.In the past there has been several near misses at the above junction and a few cars have been clipped. Cllr Norman Lewis, my Chorlton Liberal Democrat colleague, has asked the Council to urgently look at the possibility of having painted broken white lines at this junction to improve safety.
The closure of Cundiff Road will only be for around 6 months, when it will have to be reopened again to further facilitate other services related to the Metrolink construction working on Hardy Lane.
If you require more information or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
