Salford Bolton Network Improvement (SBNI) scheme 

Delivered in partnership by Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), the Salford Bolton Network Improvement (SBNI) scheme is designed to make the transport network more efficient by increasing capacity at junctions, improving traffic flow and reducing congestion. 

More information on the SBNI scheme can be found on TFGM's website. 

Walkden Train Station improvements 

The purpose of this scheme is to improve the pedestrian linkages around the station entrance. The scheme will involve adding new pedestrian crossing points, new cycle stands and upgraded bus stops. The footways will be resurfaced along with the carriageway to improve the existing conditions. 

Works on the scheme will take place from 11 September 2017 until 10 November 2017.  

The footways will be resurfaced on 24 September 2017 but will not require a road closure. 

The carriageway will be resurfaced on 22 October 2017 which will require a full road closure. Diversion routes will be implemented and well signed along the A6, Bridgewater Road/B5232, A580.

During the duration of the scheme there will be a left turn ban implemented banning the left turn out of Park Road onto Memorial Road.

The scheme will take place from 18 September 2017 until 10 November 2017. The works will be subject to four way temporary traffic lights. Unfortunately this will inevitably increase the queuing times and traffic, however the signals will be manned during peak hours to alleviate queue lengths as much as possible. There are two scheduled Sunday works on 15 October 2017 and 22 October 2017 for the resurfacing works to the carriageway, both of which will require full junction closures.

Well signed diversion routes will utilise Eccles Old Road / B5228/ Liverpool Street and Fitzwarren Street.
