Camera Warning Sign - Brinksway, Stockport

The DfT guidelines now say that a combined speed limit repeater and camera warning sign should be located within the same field of view as a fixed speed camera. This example, using TSRGD Diagram 880, is on the A560 Brinksway in Stockport.

A555 or M555 Manchester - Coppermine - 942.jpg
A555 or M555? Manchester

The Manchester A555 was it ever planned as a motorway? Perhaps to connect to the projected A6(M) Stockport north / south bypass? Well this scan from a 1988 'Reader's Digest' Road Atlas has the tell tale blue dashed line to say 'projected motorway'.

A6(M) Stockport

Remember when the idea of Stockport was not a horrible 'I'm going to get lost' feeling. When hope of the A6(M) was there. This scan was taken from a post-1971 RAC map
