Poolstock - Environmental Improvement Scheme

Poolstock TrafficConsultation is now closed.

This consultation will be open from Monday 4th March 2019 - Friday 5th April 2019.

Looking ahead to completion and opening of the A49 link road (currently expected in Spring 2020), we would like to develop proposals to introduce an environmental improvement scheme along Poolstock and Poolstock Lane, Wigan.

The A49 link road is a 40 mph dual carriageway road linking the A49 Warrington Road to Westwood Park. It is designed to alleviate traffic and congestion along Poolstock, in turn improving air quality for local residents. Our aspiration is to make Poolstock a less vehicle-dominated, more user-friendly and community-based area.

'Streets for All' is Greater Manchester’s emerging approach to thinking about the role of streets in creating sustainable, healthy and resilient places. It begins with a focus on the needs of people and place, rather than considering the movement of vehicles alone and we welcome your views to assist with scheme development.
