Trinity Way and Irwell Street Improvements Scheme - Phase 1

The scheme supports cycle and pedestrian movements by providing new and improved facilities on the Irwell Street approach to Trinity Way. These connections are also designed to link up with existing routes and future plans for the Bee Network in Salford and Manchester.

Traffic management

  • Wednesday 29 May, between 9pm to 3am
    • Irwell Street Salford-bound will be closed (section in front of Eden)
    • Traffic heading towards Salford will be diverted via Deansgate
    • Traffic heading towards Manchester will not be affected
    • Trinity Way will remain open

Why are we working at night?

We need to resurface the roads we’ve been working on to provide a smooth and safe new surface at the junction. We will also apply a new, high friction road surface and paint white lines, and other road markings.

What’s involved?

To resurface the road, we need to prepare it by removing some of the existing surface before applying the new one. This is the noisiest bit of the work. We also need to reset gutter covers and manhole lids as well as repaint white lines and other road markings. These works will be less disruptive.

What is ‘the noisiest work’?

The noisiest work includes the removal of the top road surface and any use of mechanical ‘breakers’ or ‘saw cutting’ for breaking out hard materials like concrete. We aim to finish this work by 12am on every shift, wherever possible. Please note other types of disruption through the night may include reverse beepers and flashing lights.

The scheme features the following improvements:

  • Cycle lanes in both directions on Irwell Street and a new connection to existing facilities on Trinity Way, protected facilities to be provided where feasible
  • New paving and carriageway surfacing
  • New tactile paving at pedestrian crossings
  • New landscaping and planting to increase the amount of greenery and support more sustainable drainage
  • Introduction of a yellow box junction at the junction of Irwell Street and Stanley Street to support cycle access along Irwell River Park and local access.

The transformation of this public space and the addition of new trees, planting and high-quality paving will improve the street scene at a key gateway location, complementing the ‘green walls’ of the unique, sustainable Eden office development which is located next to the scheme.
