Information gathered in the original 3-year consultation led to 25 possible filter locations being suggested as part of Phase 1.
This was reduced to 14 in Phase 2 based on feedback from the consultation in 2020. People were still able to have their say about the impact of the filters during the trial period.
Filters that are going ahead
As a result of the trial, and comments received (which were reviewed after 3 and then 6 months), 14 filters are now recommended to be made permanent.
The locations of the 14 permanent filters are:
- Buckhurst Road
- Cardus Street (North)
- Delamere Road and Gordon Avenue
- Dorset Road
- Caremine Avenue
- Guildford Road
- Henderson Street (location to be changed slightly in response to feedback from residents)
- Longden Road
- Manor Road East (location to be changed in response to feedback from residents)
- Mayford Road
- Molyneux Road
- Osborne Road
- Portville Road and Randolph Street
- Victoria Road
Phase 2 of this scheme looked at additional filters to support the existing ones, as well as other traffic calming and safety measures across Levenshulme and Burnage.
Suggestions for what was needed and where are based on accident statistics, traffic modelling and extensive resident feedback.
Filter design progress
An outline design for the filters is now almost complete.
In September 2021, the highways service showed the outline designs for the proposed next phase of work for the Levenshulme and Burnage Low Traffic Neighbourhood schemes to local councillors in both wards.
These were agreed in principle, subject to some additional measures for consideration. The designs have also been presented to TfGM for review and comment and continue to be developed in order to secure approval.
Therefore, further meetings are needed to agree on the outline design for each ward. We are working on this with our key stakeholders, with an aim to agree the proposed designs in early Autumn 2021.
Once an agreement on design has been reached, the cost estimate of this will be developed and reviewed against available funding.
