From 6 July 2020, there will be lane closures and traffic management in place on and around Exchange Quay, Merchants Quay and The Quays. This will allow us to make improvements to Trafford Road and will last for around 19 weeks. We’re sorry for any delays or inconvenience.
The A5063 Trafford Road improvements scheme includes a package of measures to support access to MediaCityUK, Salford Quays and Ordsall. The package includes optimisation of the traffic signals, provision of additional traffic lanes to assist turning traffic, and improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
Salford City Council has secured funding of approximately £20m to facilitate the scheme, with £10.5m secured from Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) Growth Deal Fund, and £4.8m secured from GMCA Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund.
The key scheme objectives are to improve junction capacity to enable continued growth across Salford Quays, and to improve pedestrian and cycling links both along and across the corridor to improve social connectivity to the Ordsall Community and beyond.
The scheme proposals are as follows:
