The whole scheme is an embarrassment, it's not solving anything.

 

How will that improve traffic heading up the A628 through Hollingworth or Tintwistle.

 

If they can't do it right first time, why even bother doing it at all 

Right. If I understand correctly where it links it essentially links in *after* you pass through all the congestion hot spots coming from Sheffield!

It might not improve things for people travelling from Manchester to Sheffield, but it will improve things for locals who are caught up in the passing traffic.

It makes it easier via the Snake and Glossop as it cuts out Mottram Moor - but can't see any gains for Woodhead traffic or the residents of Hollingworth.

I remember reading that when permission was given for the M62 it was reliant on no other major trans-pennine road building being allowed due to the environmental concerns they had even back then.
Mottram moor is the major hold-up so this will help a lot but it’s never going to be perfect.
