Description:The Wilmslow Road, near the Lakeland shop, has for many years run across an orphan bridge.

The bridge stood for more than 15 years above an increasing jungle; all of this was swept away in 2016. On December 3rd 2016, the bridge now stands above the base levels of the new (westward) extension of the Manchester Airport A555 Eastern approach road as it marches towards Styal Road and the airfield.

Roll on summer 2017!
