The Rusholme experience -
20,000 lorries passed by the front door of the residents
First proposed in 2000, Rusholme was not approved until 2006.
Even then it wasn’t until November 2009 that construction started.
It was then that the problems began for the residents.
The developer had decided to use a shorter route to the site which took all the heavy traffic into the site past a group of 8 homes.
A new turning circle was built opposite the homes and new road down the side. The residents endured 4 months of constant vibration, noise and dust from the site traffic.
