The city centre of Salford is changing rapidly as the Central Business District expands and regeneration plans take shape creating new communities and businesses.
Salford City Council has developed a strategic plan for this part of the city centre aimed at promoting less reliance on the motor car and encouraging more people to cycle, walk or use public transport.
Gore Street is located at the heart of the city centre, situated between Salford Central Station and Chapel Street. However, at present Gore Street doesn’t connect well with the wider walking and cycling network.
Salford City Council aim to secure funding to facilitate improvements at Gore Street so that it will integrate with adjacent developments and support the opening up of railway arches, creating new pedestrian routes between Chapel Street, Salford Central Station, New Bailey and into Manchester.
The scheme will include new pedestrian crossing facilities and upgraded footways that would connect into improved public realm either side of Gore Street. Junction improvements are also planned that will allow two-way traffic access between Gore Street and Trinity Way. This will improve access and reduce the impact of traffic turning onto New Bailey Street.
The scheme is currently at detailed design stage and the main construction works are planned to start in January 2021 (subject to funding).
There will be a three-week consultation period between 16 July and 6 August when you can give your views.
The consultation document can be made available in accessible formats and other languages upon request.
