Wide smooth tarmac cycleway passes under the new A556 road via a well lit underpass. There are steps for horse riders to dismount.

This road used to be the A566 - a nasty 4-lane road that acted as a motorway junction between the M6 & M566. Now a new road has been constructed the old road has been downgraded to a 30 mph country lane making for ideal cycling conditions.

Cycleway along old route of the A556 takes a long detour and yields priority to cross the side road.

Cycleway alongside former route of A556 yields priority at a side road

Staggered crossing via an incredibly thin central island. I think the Chreshire Cycleway (RCN 70) is supposed to cross here now that the traffic lights at Bucklow Hill have gone - though there are no route signs.

cycleway yields priority at side road crossing.

Cycleway loses priority at a side road crossing. There really is no excuse at this location as the cycleway used to be part of the A556 carriageway - so the give way markings had to be deliberately moved.

Cycleway crosses, then re-crosses the old alignment of the A566

Diagonal road crossing - no priority to cycleway.

Cycleway alongside former route of the A556 detours up side road then makes a sharp right-angle turn to cross the road without priority.

Brand new cycleway alongside the old route of the A556 surfaced with loose chippings.

Spot the cycleway sign!

Cheshire Cycleway sign. Very small and difficult to spot at such a large junction. No destinations shown.
