Roe Green Loopline

Roe Green Loopline

The Roe Green Loopline is a 7.2 kilometre traffic-free walking and cycling route that starts in Monton and runs all the way to the border with Bolton.

The council has consistently invested in the loopline over the last ten years creating a very high quality route that is popular with cyclists, school children and dog walkers.

Works to the final two stretches of the route between Tynesbank and Mesne Lea School and between Anchor Lane and Mount Skip Lane were completed in summer 2016. 

The Roe Green Loopline was formally reopened to the public on 6 July 2016 by Councillor Derek Antrobus

The improvements include:

  • A three-metre wide shared use path for walking and cycling that are high quality, durable and low maintenance.
  • Good and frequent access points connecting to residential and employment areas and schools.
  • Entrances designed to enable access for all users including cyclists, pushchairs and wheelchair and mobility scooter users.
  • Pleasant routes for both leisure and commuting.
  • Consistent, high quality signage.
