The vegetation clearance works started in January is now complete.
Works will shortly be starting on a series of localised utility diversions and advanced works to facilitate the main Trafford Road Corridor Improvements which are due to start on site in the summer of 2020.
Works will be carried out during off peak hours wherever possible, but some of the utility diversions may require traffic management remaining in situ for longer durations which may affect journey times along the corridor. Further information will be posted on this web page as the works progress.
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:
