Altrincham’s streets are getting a deep clean

By Josh Peachey at

A series of deep cleaning sessions that will brighten up the streets of Altrincham over the next few months has begun.

The first steam cleaning session, funded by Altrincham Unlimited, started yesterday and will finish tomorrow.

The specialist contractors will be using hot pressure washing and surface cleaning to remove chewing gum, food and drink stains, organic growth and general dirt from the paved areas.

Martin Duff, deputy chair of Altrincham’s BID Board, said: “The businesses we represent in the BID area tell us that street cleanliness is of utmost importance to them.

“Particularly after a long hot summer, it was clear that parts of the town were crying out for a specialist intensive clean. This is not a one-off project and eventually will be rolled out across the town.”

The area getting cleaned in this session stretches from Monkhouse at the top of Shaw’s Road all the way down to Tim Hortons on Cross Street.

Parts of Railway Street are next to be prioritised and the BID board will agree on the next areas over the coming months.
