Works will begin today on the next section of the Chorlton to Manchester Cycleway.

Since the beginning of this year extensive works have already taken place at the Wilbraham Road/Manchester Road junction, with a CYCLOPS junction being installed to provide better and more seamless transit for pedestrians, motorists and cyclists.

Today (Tuesday, September 12) work will start to construct another CYCLOPS junction at the Sandy Lane/Barlow Moor Road/High Lane junction, accelerating the existing timescale for this project.

Works are anticipated to last until December.

Initial works will concern implementing temporary traffic lights as the permanent ones currently in place are decommissioned.

A traffic plan during the works can be found on the Council website as the works progress, please visit www.manchester.gov.uk/improvements to find out more.

Councillor Tracey Rawlins, Executive Member for Environment and Transport said: “We are pleased so far with the ongoing works in Chorlton which, in the long term, will improve the ways in which we get around the city and make it easier for people to walk and cycle safely.

“As the majority of the disruptive work around the four banks junction has been completed we are now turning our focus to Sandy Lane. As ever, I would thank motorists for their patience during these works and I look forward to the final completion of this project.
