Images of the futuristic bridge have recently been revealed and it showcases a new walking and cycling route between the train station and the two-acre Podium Park.

The proposed bridge will span 100m and is part of Andy Burnhams walking and cycling Mayoral Challenge Fund.

The park will be located on the roof of the new interchange, bringing a vibrant, new green space to the town centre.

The proposals will improve walking and cycling routes in Stockport and benefit the Trans Pennine Trail.

The consultation is taking place between Monday 9th March and Sunday 29th.

Alex Cropper, Head of Operations at Transport for Greater Manchester, said: “It’s promising to see an interchange of this magnitude integrate cycling and walking elements from the start, improving connectivity and enabling people to undertake part of their journey by foot or bike before linking into the wider transport network.

“The addition of a Podium Park is an innovative way of bringing more green space to the city centre for everyone to enjoy.”
