The Council and democracy Our Manchester: a connected city


An integrated, smart, clean transport network will reflect the city's changing shape and the way people move around.

We’ll have more cycling and walking, with the improved infrastructure and signage needed.

The city will be at the centre of first class networks – locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

The momentum created by high-speed rail network 'HS2' developments will drive growth and investment,  and work as part of Transport for the North on long term investment to radically improve transport connections across the North.

We'll capitalise on the increased airport capacity and the connectivity and logistics benefits of Airport City to boost the economy.

We'll create a framework for action as a 'digital city' and use digital technology to transform how we live in the city – looking, for example, at how it could reduce energy bills and carbon emissions.
