As part of a Greater Manchester-wide programme the Mayor of Greater Manchester has allocated £160 million to the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund. This has been made possible thanks to the national government’s Transforming Cities Fund which is investing in public and sustainable transport to improve productivity and spread prosperity. 

As part of this we’re looking to make walking and cycling in the north and east of the city a safer and more enjoyable experience for everyone, and we’d like your input to help make this happen.
We’ve designed plans for a new continuous cycling and walking route, linking the areas to the north and east of the city – Ancoats, New Islington, New Cross, New Town, Redbank and the Green Quarter – to each other and the city centre. 

We’re proposing:

  • Better walking/ cycling-friendly public areas to make it easier for people to move between existing neighbourhoods and developments.
  • Better access to work on the North and East edge of the city centre. 
  • Better joined-up public spaces and signs to encourage more people to walk and cycle.
  • Improving walking and cycling access to the city centre and public transport, and connections to other schemes like the Northern Quarter between Piccadilly and Victoria Stations, the Rochdale and Ashton Canals, and the National Cycle Network route 66.
  • Connecting with proposed improvements to Great Ancoats Street, making it easier to cross, with better public spaces.
