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.
Final designs have been approved for the Levenshulme and Burnage Active Travel Neighbourhood plan
Final designs for the Levenshulme and Burnage Active Travel Neighbourhood plan have been approved, signalling the next phase of this flagship programme.
For more than three years, thousands of residents have taken part and made their voices heard on this ambitious initiative, aimed at changing the way we view and interact with the neighbourhoods we live in.
Resident feedback has been a key part of the development of the plans being taken forward. This has included learning how people move around their neighbourhood and risks they encounter each day.
For example, cars speeding at more than 60mph were recorded in the area – a clear example of behaviours Active Travel Neighbourhoods are trying to mitigate.
As a result of public feedback during the trial two of the permanent filters in Henderson Street and Manor Road East will be moved slightly. In addition, revised plans have been brought forward for the Burnage section of the scheme, as part of the overall plan.
Public feedback was incorporated into the final designs and support has been secured for a larger scheme than was originally planned.
