Stockport Council have just opened a new Bee Network walking and cycling consultation, for a route from Edgeley, bridging the mainline railway junction and the A6, into the town centre and marketplace.
Part of the Trans Pennine Trail in Stockport will be closed for approximately five weeks from Monday, 28th June 2021 for resurfacing works to take place. Update (28/06/21): This closure has now been postponed to mid-September 2021.

Transport for Greater Manchester and the region’s Combined Authority have completed an important step in the implementation of their Bee Network walking and cycling plans, publishing an Active Travel Design Guide that sets out the key rules for designing future schemes in its ten boroughs.
