Road status enquiries

Salford City Council maintains public registers that provide information about highway status.

View the register

The registers can be viewed from 9am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, at Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, M27 5AS.

Information is available on:

  • Adopted highways (highways maintained by Salford City Council as Highway Authority)
  • Permanently closed highways (highways that have been legally closed with public rights of way extinguished)
  • Definitive footpaths (public footpaths and bridleways)
  • Highways subject to a Section 38 Agreement of the Highways Act 1980 (proposed adoption)
  • The National Street Gazetteer (a complete listing of all streets, footways and passages in the city)

Records can be viewed free of charge at Salford Civic Centre. A fee is payable where information is required in writing and application for this service can be made by letter or email providing that a scaled plan, identifying the area to which the enquiry relates, is provided.
