Trafford Road engagement

The vegetation clearance works started in January is now complete.

Works due to imminently start on localised utility diversions and advanced works to facilitate the main Trafford Road Corridor Improvements have currently been suspended due to coronavirus lockdown.

Further information will be posted on this web page as the situation changes.

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:

  • To review and improve the following junctions to operate more efficiently and improve capacity:
    • Trafford Road/Broadway
    • Trafford Road/The Quays
    • Trafford Road/Ordsall Lane
    • Trafford Road/Exchange Quay/Clippers Quay
    • The Quays/Waterfront Quay
    • The Quays/Furness Quay
  • To enhance the Trafford Road corridor by improving capacity redefining the central reservation, carriageway and footway widths
  • To review existing materials and ensure consistency throughout the corridor
  • To incorporate a cycle route along the corridor 
  • To improve pedestrian facilities throughout
  • To support and complement existing and future development
