Manchester City Council

Consultations & surveys Manchester to Chorlton cycling and walking route proposals

Chorlton Road - from Chester Road to Upper Chorlton Road

Chorlton Road forms the most northern section of the Manchester to Chorlton Cycle route, and connects Brooks Bar junction to the off-road cycle tracks at Chester Road roundabout, which lead into the city centre. The route is already well used and is popular with commuters and students.

This section will link to the existing cycle lanes being developed along Stretford Road from Old Trafford by Trafford council, and the rest of the route leading to Chorlton Park through the centre of Chorlton.
