Area 2 - Upper Chorlton Road
Upper Chorlton Road - from Chorlton Road to Seymour Grove
The Upper Chorlton Road section completes the cycle link between the Brooks Bar junction and Seymour Grove.
This mainly residential section is popular with commuters and will provide a safe and direct route along the boundary between Manchester and Trafford.
Comments from the consultation:
- do not want to lose parking on Upper Chorlton Road due to the introduction of cycle infrastructure due to worried about displaced parking
- against banned movements at Brooks Bar Junction, or concern of more traffic 'rat running' through; Alexandra Road South, Ayres Road, Buckingham Road, Brantingham Road, College Road, Dudley Road, Egerton Road, Nell Lane, Park Road, St Werburgh's Road, Sylvan Road, Whalley Road, Wood Road, and Chorlton High School, Manley Park school, Our Lady School Frontage and Chorlton Primary, or objection
- concern as to what is happening with these 'under review' bus stops - requests not move them (particularly Wood Road and Sylvan Avenue)
- against the closure of Shrewsbury Street
- Seymour Grove design caters for all groups but seems over designed, confusing or difficult. A better solution should be sought.
Next steps for Stretford Road to Seymour Grove
Consultation proposals will now be progressed to a detailed design stage. Some comments raised as part of the consultation will be reviewed as part of these works. Detailed design works at Brooks Bar junction will be subject to further review of the proposed banned movements at the junction and impact on the local road network. A suitable design for the Stretford Road junction to link with the recently introduced segregated cycle lanes from Old Trafford direction will also be developed. We are aiming to make a start on site in May 2020.
Proposed changes from the consultation (now closed)
- marked cycle lane, with coloured surfacing and cycle symbols
- solar-powered road studs
- buff-coloured uncontrolled pedestrian crossing points, including tactile paving
- widening of footway at junction to reduce speeds through the junction.
The information on the design of specific streets is being reviewed.
