CASE STUDIES

 

Western Gateway Infrastructure Scheme

 

HOCHTIEF along with partner Buckingham Group is delivering the A57 road improvement schemes to significantly improve traffic on local roads and reduce peak time congestion. It forms part of infrastructure improvements that have been funded by Peel, Salford City Council and Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy with an ultimate aim to regenerate the previously vacant land, creating jobs and raising the profile of the City of Salford.  

Atlas Traffic Management was chosen to provide Traffic Management for the three phases.

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT OVERVIEW

 

Phase One

Atlas installed a contraflow transferring all westbound traffic (towards Irlam) onto the eastbound carriageway (towards Eccles) between the Barton Aerodrome Junction and the Barley Farm Junction.

Traffic turning left out of Stadium Way to head westbound was directed to follow a diversion route through Peel Green to M60 J11 then directed traffic back onto the A57 Westbound.

Phase Two

The contraflow was switched from the eastbound carriageway to the westbound carriageway between Barley Farm Junction and the Barton Aerodrome Junction.

Traffic turning left out of Stadium Way to head westbound was directed to follow a diversion route through Peel Green to M60 J11 then directed traffic back onto the A57 Westbound.

 

Phase Three

On or around 10th October, the contraflow will be removed and replaced with a single lane running on both the east and westbound carriageways between the City Airport Junction and Stadium Junction
