Footpaths 48 and 50 Swinton and Pendlebury

Salford City Council intends to make in no less than seven days the Salford City Council (Definitive Map Footpaths 48 and 50 Swinton and Pendlebury) (Temporary Closure) Order 2021 under section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

The order will temporarily prohibit pedestrians from proceeding in:

  1. Definitive Map Footpath DF 48, Swinton and Pendlebury (also known as the Eccles Road Link), from its junction with the southern end of Eccles Road in a southerly direction to Definitive Map Footpath DF 50 Swinton & Pendlebury (also known as the Colliery Line); and
  2. Definitive Map Footpath DF 50, Swinton and Pendlebury (also known as The Colliery Line) from Definitive Map Footpath DF48 Swinton and Pendlebury (also known as the Eccles Road Link) in a north easterly direction to the A580 East Lancashire Road - including both junctions with the road and the Westgate Drive and Manor Road spurs.

The pedestrian diversion routes will be:

  • when both Footpaths are closed, via the footpath known as the Campbell Spur, then via Campbell Road and the A580 East Lancashire Road, and vice versa; and
  • at such stages of the works as permits - via Footpath DF48 if it is temporarily reopened when Footpath DF50 is closed; and via Footpath DF50 if it is temporarily reopened when Footpath DF48 is closed.

The order is necessary to enable works of repair and improvement to be undertaken to the footpaths. The order is due to come into operation on 12 April 2021 and will be in effect for a period of up to six months, depending on the progress of the works. A plan showing the footpaths affected by the order and alternative route may be examined at the Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 5DA, between 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday inclusive (due to the COVID-19 restrictions, please ensure that the Civic Centre is open before attending). Alternatively, copies of the documentation may be requested via email at or by writing to Fiona Ledden, City Solicitor PO Box 532, Town Hall, Manchester, M60 2LA quoting reference OUT1093/900.
