No plan to reopen lane for vehicles

Dear Sir, — I read an article in last week’s Chronicle, which related to the reopening of Sandy Lane between Wallhill and Holmes Chapel Road. 
Your assumption that the road will open to vehicular traffic in the autumn is incorrect.
Sandy Lane will reopen to walkers, cyclists and horse riders by Easter 2020. 
It is not planned to reopen AT ALL to through vehicular traffic: that’s what the link road (Macclesfield Expressway) is for! 
I trust you will do a factcheck in the future. — Yours faithfully,
