  • Mottram Moor link road - a new dual-carriageway link road from the M67 terminal roundabout to a new junction at A57(T) Mottram Moor and a new single carriageway link;
  • A57(T) to A57 link road - a new single carriageway link from the A57 at Mottram Moor to a new junction on the A57 at Brookfield, bypassing the existing A628/A57 and A57 Woolley Lane/Hadfield Road junctions

Consultation on the proposals will take place between 12 February 2018 and 25 March 2018.
