The Trans-Pennine Upgrade is looking to improve connectivity between Manchester and Sheffield city regions. The existing route connecting the M67 at Mottram in Longdendale to the M1, north of Sheffield, mostly consists of single carriageway sections with steep gradients and sharp bends. The existing route currently poses a number of negative impacts on local people. Sections of the route can also be badly affected by poor weather, accident rates are above the national average and it is often congested.

The scheme is an Environmental Impact Assessment development, which means a Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) will be produced (to describe the environmental effects of the scheme) and consulted on.

The Statement of Community of Community Consultation (SoCC) sets out how we will be consulting with the local community about our scheme and how they can get involved. The SoCC can be inspected online at www.highways.gov.uk/trans-pennine-upgrade/ or at the following deposit locations: Broadbottom Community Centre, Hattersley Hub (Stockport Road), Hattersley Library, Hollingworth Post Office, Magdalene Centre (Mottram Road, Broadbottom), Mottram Post Office (1 Mottram Moor), St. Mary’s Church (Market Street, Hollingworth), Bradbury Community House, Gamesley Community and Sports Centre (Melandra Castle Road, Glossop), Glossop Leisure Centre, Glossop Library, Hadfield Library (Station Road, Glossop), High Peak Borough Council, Peak District National Park Authority, Barnsley Central Library, Tankersley Welfare Hall, Tankersley Post Office, Penistone Library, Stocksbridge Library.

The consultation will be held from 12 February 2018 to 25 March 2018. You can view our consultation materials (including: plans, brochure, SoCC, PEIR) at our consultation events where you can speak with the Project Team and share your views.
