This is the latest stage of the consultation and approval process which has taken more than three years and involved engagement with thousands of people; one of our most extensive Highways consultations ever.
This is one scheme for the whole Levenshulme and Burnage area, which was previously divided into phases to allow a trial to be completed and work to be able to progress. The fourteen filters trialled in the previous phase are now proposed to be permanent, and as a result of feedback during the trial, two of the permanent filters in Henderson Street and Manor Road East will be moved slightly.
The current consultation completes this process, and gives details of the rest of the proposed scheme. In the last consultation, people told us where they felt the issues were which prevented them walking and cycling in the area. Local monitoring also gathered vital data, for example showing that cars speeding at more than 60mph were recorded in the area – a clear example of behaviours Active Travel Neighbourhoods are trying to mitigate.
We listened to your feedback, and made a case for how the issues could be addressed through traffic calming measures. As a result we have designed a scheme larger than originally planned, and allowed us to address issues in the main areas which residents identified.
