The SEMMMS Road has had a number of different names. It is now known, officially, as the “A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road” (A6MARR).  It has also been known as the MAELR Route and the A555. In Heald Green we may prefer to call it the “Finney Lane Bypass”!

The road will run from the A6, near “Simpson’s Corner” to the M56 at the Airport. Part of it has been in use for many years, running from a roundabout on the Woodford/Bramhall road to the double roundabout on Wilmslow Rd near the “Waggon & Horses”. The section nearest Heald Green continues from the existing underpass on Wilmslow Rd, across the fields behind Davies Avenue, skirts the South side of Robinson’s greenhouses and crosses the railway near the airport spur to a junction with Styal Rd. From there it will continue to meet up with the line of the existing Ringway Rd, near Shadow Moss Rd and on to the Airport/M56.

The road was due to be opened last Autumn. However, there is a delay and completion is not now expected until Spring 2018.

We have been pressing for this relief from the traffic which bedevils Heald Green for more years than most. Success at last!
