To consider a report accepting a Government grant to enable the implementation of a major road safety scheme for the A537.


Consideration was given to a report requesting the Highways and Transport Committee’s approval to deliver a Safer Road Fund Scheme on a section of the A537 Buxton Road ‘Cat & Fiddle’ between its junction with the Silk Road in Macclesfield and the Cheshire East boundary with Derbyshire (“the Scheme”) that would help to reduce the number of road traffic collisions and associated casualties, including the number of people killed or seriously injured.  The Scheme was fully funded by the Department for Transport (DfT) grant received by the Council.




1.That the delivery of the A537 Buxton Road, Macclesfield Safer Road Fund road traffic collision and casualty reduction scheme through the Highway Service Contract be approved, subject to the Ringway Jacobs target costs for the scheme satisfying the Council’s best value requirements.

2.That the Director of Infrastructure and Highways in consultation with the Highways and Transport Committee Chair be authorised to take all necessary actions to implement the Scheme using the funding provided by the Department for Transport.
