September 2014 –  The SEMMMS construction will commence in February 2015 and will be finished by end of summer 2017


SMBC has now approved the plans for its section of the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road (SEMMMS). As previously indicated, these include:

  •  Six new road junctions;
  •  Modification to three existing road junctions;
  •  Three new rail bridge crossings;
  •  One new public right of way/accommodation bridge;
  •  Three new road bridges;
  •  A pedestrian cycle route;
  •  Four balancing ponds;

and Associated landscaping, lighting, engineering and infrastructure works.

Manchester City Council approved the plans for its part of the road at a meeting held on 13th February 2014 and we understand that Cheshire East will be considering its plans at a meeting of its Strategic Planning Board on 5th March 2014.

The main contractor for the SEMMMS road scheme, Carillion Morgan Sindall (CMS), will be carrying out ground investigation works for around 6 weeks, starting on Wednesday 19th February 2014. This will involve some 250 trial pits/trenches or boreholes along the length of the scheme.  Letters will be issued to the 20 or so landowners affected.  For more information contact the CMS Engineering Manager, John England, T. 0161 9278220, e-mail
