Due to the main Trafford Road Corridor Improvements commencing on site in the summer of 2020 it is necessary for an advanced tree and vegetation clearance in January 2020, in order for work to be completed outside of the bird nesting season March to August.
Work involves removal of trees and vegetation within the central reservation and adjacent to the dual carriageway including associated traffic management during off peak hours. Starting on 13 January for approximately four weeks. The Trafford Road Corridor Improvements will include a replacement tree strategy including rain garden construction.
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:
