The bridge is now in place across the river but work on its foundations and access paths means it will probably not be open for use until the end of July.

Hello Wheels

Your question about my being your representative is answered this way. The Cyclists' Touring Club (membership 70,000) has a nationwide group  of volunteers dedicated to trying to improve cycling conditions in their area. They are known as the CTC's Right to Ride Representatives. I am one but we need more. Too many cyclists, quite understandably, are unwilling to waste their time trying to improve conditions for themselves and others as they know few authorities are willing to take cyclists seriously. You have to be willing to bang your head against the wall almost indefinitely, but sometimes cracks appear and Connect2 is one of them. Hopefully this is the start of improved conditions. Now we need more cyclists and others to persuade Stockport MBC to complete the job and link Chadkirk with Stockport Town Centre and the Trans Pennine Trail.

I hope it's planned to join the pathway onto Marple Hall Drive properly here and replace those rusty old railings at the top of the cobbles (especially after the bizarrely OTT pavement widening at Rose Hill). It's a good thing the cobbles were "saved", but they are horrible to cycle over. Couldn't they have just built a new path next to them rather than on top of them?

Anyone interested in seeing some of the action on the day the bridge was lifted into position may like to view this short video.

Just watched the short video - it was excellent.

Can't wait for the bridge to be opened.

I have created a better upload of the video of the installation of the bridge over the River Goyt at Chadkirk. It can be seen here.

I trust Admin will remove the original link. Let's hope the weather improves for Chadkirk Festival and the Official Opening of the Bridge on the 29th July, and if Stockport MBC have a display then please thank them but also persuade them to continue the route in a similar style through to Stockport and the Trans Pennine trail.

Yes, Bluebelly, once completed you will be able to walk across the bridge. I don't know whether you can actually get across it yet as the last time I was down there (about a week ago) there was no access to the bridge.

It's a foot/cycle/bridle path and quite wide so plenty of room for all users.

How long will it be before motorbikes start using it, can they access it?
