Consultations & surveys Manchester to Chorlton cycling and walking route proposals

The consultation is now closed.

We've had a great response to the consultation with over 1,700 comments received. Work is underway to analyse the feedback, and the resulting plans will be updated in due course.

Work has started on a Greater Manchester network of safe, high-quality joined-up cycling and walking routes.

In 2018, Chris Boardman, Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner, unveiled an innovative new plan, created by the ten local authorities, for a city-region-wide cycling and walking network.

The network is made up of more than 1,000 miles of routes, including 75 miles of fully segregated bike lanes, and will be the largest joined-up system of walking and cycling routes in the UK. Once built, the network will better connect every community in Greater Manchester, benefiting 2.7million people and making cycling and walking a real alternative to the car.

The Manchester to Chorlton route:

Costing approximately £13.4million and funded through the Government’s Cycle City Ambition Grant and the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund, this project will create a route that includes large sections of segregation between people travelling on foot or by bike and other traffic from Chorlton Park to Manchester.

The 5km route will run along Barlow Moor Road, Manchester Road, Upper Chorlton Road and Chorlton Road, linking with existing routes and continuing to the city centre. Chorlton will be one of the first routes to be built and will provide a high-quality, segregated link between Chorlton and Manchester city centre, making it safer, more attractive and easier to get around.

For this consultation we have split the route up in to four sections:
