Traffic & Weather Updates



**9th March – proposed changes to SG2 route to Wilmslow from Monday 12th March**

Currently, the SG2 route from Stockport Grammar School, in the afternoons, is causing us problems along Broad Walk and Gorsey Road. Due to traffic calming measures and cars double parking for the local primary school, we are finding it increasingly difficult to drive a large vehicle down these roads. In the mornings the pick-ups along these roads are fine it just seems to be a problem in the afternoons. It has come to a point where we feel it is unsafe so with this in mind we propose that from Monday 12th March we will not drive down these roads but will drop children at either Bank Square, Wilmslow or the corner of Beddels Lane with Altrincham Road and Hawthorn Street, on the return journey only. We will drop children along the route, if this is more convenient for you although if these changes are going to cause you problems, please telephone Gary on 07860 437341.


**Monday 5th March**

All coach services to Stockport Grammar School will be running as normal morning and afternoon on Monday 5th March.

——————————————————————————

**Friday 2nd March** UPDATE AT 22.00 1/03/18

After careful consideration, we have decided not to run any coach services tomorrow, to Stockport Grammar School either in the morning or the afternoon for safety reasons. The weather conditions are too extreme and we feel this would compromise everyone’s safety.
