Not strictly transport except in the loose sense of being pedestrian transport!
The Merseyway Shopping Centre is a shopping precinct in Stockport. It opened in 1965, but was extensively refurbished in the 1990s long after these photographs were taken. It is a large pedestrianised area built on stilts over the River Mersey with two levels of walkways giving access to the retail units.
Merseyway itself is mostly an open air precinct, although the western end near Mersey Square was given a canopy in the 1990s and is now a small enclosed mall. The developers Hammerson owned the centre until 2003 when they sold the leasehold to property company Stockport Holdings Ltd., owned by the Jersey-based Halabi family trust. In 2009, the centre was placed into receivership. The anchor stores then were Debenhams and Marks & Spencer, with approximately 85 other retailers.
To the south and east of the centre are the Peel Centre and the towns' historic market. Stockport attracts about 14 million visitors per year, making it a prominent shopping destination in the Greater Manchester Urban Area. Its catchment covers affluent areas of north Cheshire and south Manchester, competing with other major retail destinations in the area such as Manchester city centre, Ashton-under-Lyne and the Trafford Centre. The centre also hosts numerous promotional events at Christmas and throughout the year.
