Request for cycle lanes, routes and cycle parking

Salford City Council has a rolling programme aimed at improving facilities for cycle users across the city.

Most cycle lanes are provided on an "advisory" basis. This means that motorists may also enter them but should try to avoid doing so. Some lanes, however, are mandatory which means that they are for cyclists only and these require a traffic regulation order and it is an offence for other traffic to enter. Within Salford, cyclists can also use bus lanes.

Cycle lanes

The city council has a rolling programme aimed at improving cycle facilities such as new cycle lanes across the city. If you have any suggestions for improvements or new lanes contact Lee Evans.

Cycle parking

The city council has a rolling programme for installing cycle parking. Approximately ten sites are installed each year at various public buildings, town centres or public transport interchanges.

If you have any suggestions for further cycle parking sites across the city please contact Lee Evans.

The city council has been providing short stay cycle parking at various locations across the city for cyclists to use. The parking stands are generally Sheffield parking stands as recommended by the Greater Manchester Cycle Parking Guidelines.

Concise Pedestrian and Cycle Audit (COPECAT)

The Greater Manchester Concise Pedestrian and Cycle Audit (COPECAT) has been compiled in order to provide a consistent approach to pedestrian and cycle infrastructure across Greater Manchester. A copy can be downloaded below.
