Drivers urged to avoid Trafford Road if possible


Drivers are being warned to avoid Trafford Road if possible as a sink hole recently appeared near the junction with Moss Lane and Stevens Street.

Councillor Craig Browne said "Following my report to CE Highways, it has been coned off and passed on to United Utilities whilst they inspect the integrity of their sewer connection.

"On visual inspection of the area it does appear that quite a large cavity has developed underneath the road surface, which is indicative of continued egress of water over a prolonged period.

"I would advise caution if in the area and recommend that drivers avoid this section of Trafford Road if at all possible."

Dear all,

Further to my previous report, I am now advised that there will be a road closure at the junction of Trafford Road/Stevens Street/Moss Lane from Wednesday 25th to Friday 27th May (inclusive), to allow United Utilities to carry out repairs to their network and consequential damage to the highway. Please take extra care if you are in the area on these dates or potentially choose an alternative route for your journey.

Kind regards,
