As someone who now avoids driving through Hazel Grove as a result of the bypass, has there been any studies as to how it has affected traffic flows in the vicinity? I know that it seems to have made the traffic worse on High Lane at times, but how about on other nearby roads?

Difficult to say at the moment as both the A6 in Hazel Grove/Great Moor and the A5143 from HG to Bramhall are knee-deep in long-term roadworks, so road usage around here is nowhere near 'normal'. A better time to make a reasonably valid judgment with regard to local traffic around the A555 will be after the Poynton by-pass is completed.
