This article is about the village on the A6.
For the junction on the A3, see Hazel Grove Interchange
.

Hazel Grove is a congested village on the A6 between Stockport and Buxton. At the Rising Sun junction, the A523 to Poynton and Macclesfield forks. A narrow S4 carriageway, seven signalized junctions with few right turn refuges and a further four pedestrian crossings make the village a notorious bottleneck on the A6.

Historically, the village was a very convenient stopping point for travellers in the 18th century to change horses, hence the large number of pubs, catering for their passengers. Trams used to operate down the A6 as far as Hazel Grove until 1949, whilst in modern times the village is now the terminus of the 192 bus route from Manchester.

The south end of the village will see the temporary terminus of the A555 eastern extension, though the future of the continuation through to Bredbury and the M60 is uncertain.
