The Manchester to Chorlton Walking and Cycleway scheme is part of our commitment to make transport across the city healthier and cleaner. Read about the consultation and results
We’re doing this by improving our connections across the city to support long-term, sustainable economic growth and access to opportunities for all. This ties in with the Greater Manchester 2040 transport strategy
Area 1a - Chorlton Road, from Chester Road to Upper Chorlton Road
From 11 November 2019, work will start on Area 1a of the Chorlton Cycleway. This section will run from the Chester Road roundabout up to Stretford Road, and will mainly consist of segregated cycle lanes. It will also introduce the first of the new, modern cycling and pedestrian friendly junctions of the scheme and utilise the existing cycleway along this route. There will be minimal traffic management, and the main works on the cyclops junction at Royce Road will not start until January 2020
We’re expecting this work to take around three months and during this time, there will be traffic management, lane closures and diversions in place. We will give more details on these as the project progresses.
