Trafford Council’s plan to close Barrington Road to through-traffic has been placed on hold “until further notice”

Trafford Council has halted a proposal to close off Barrington Road to through-traffic.

We reported yesterday how Trafford was planning to erect some form of barrier at the junction with Sandiway Road and Gaskell Road for a period of up to 18 months, with a Traffic Regulation Order on the official council website stating that the closure would happen on June 20th.

The plans followed special powers granted to local authorities to facilitate their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

But a spokeperson for the council said that “after careful consideration” the Barrington Road closure had been “placed on hold until further notice”.
