Swinton Greenway scheme update

Salford City Council is working with Transport for Greater Manchester to enhance the walking and cycling routes between Monton and Swinton, extending Salford’s award-winning traffic-free network.

The Swinton Greenway proposals include the route between Manchester Road and Monton Road, with several additional links to local schools, colleges and the wider community. The majority of the off-road path will be three to four metres wide, with lighting controlled by timers and/or movement sensors. On-road improvements for pedestrians and cyclists are also proposed, including localised resurfacing and improved crossings.
