Roads and transport City Centre Transport Strategy for 2040

What is it?

The City Centre Transport Strategy, developed by Transport for Greater Manchester, Manchester City Council and Salford City Council will guide how city centre transport is improved across the next two decades. 

It has been produced following input from residents, commuters, businesses, visitors, transport operators and other stakeholders to understand the existing transport challenges and future aspirations for the city centre of those that use it each day. Read the consultation that helped to shape this strategy.

To support our vision, our aim is for 90% of morning peak trips into the city centre to be made on foot, by cycle or public transport before 2040 . This means fewer cars in the city centre so we can have cleaner air, support our carbon reduction targets and rebalance street space enabling us to make walking the main mode of travel for getting around. We define walking in its most inclusive form, recognising for those who may be disabled or with limited mobility this may mean relying upon guide dogs, wheelchairs, or other mobility aids to travel.
