Residents invited to have their say on new proposed crossings in Little Hulton

Residents can now give their views on proposed new crossings that will enable more people in the Cleggs Lane area of Little Hulton to walk, cycle or wheel for everyday journeys.

The proposed improvements, being developed in partnership between Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), which are now under consultation, would contribute towards GM’s ambition to deliver the UK’s largest cycling and walking network.

The consultation on the proposed changes will run until Monday 22 August.

Commenting on the plans, Active Travel Commissioner, Dame Sarah Storey, said: “It is great to see the consultation open for the proposed improvements on three crossing points along Cleggs Lane. A key part of the Bee Network becoming a fully integrated transport system is having well-connected, convenient, safe and accessible places for people to cross busier roads, whether they are walking, wheeling or cycling.

“The proposed improvements to these three busy junctions in Little Hulton are aimed at making it safer and more convenient for residents to travel on foot or by bike, something that is often harder to achieve when communities are so close to major motorway routes and the subsequent numbers of vehicle journeys from the strategic route network.

“The Bee Network strategy is to create a transport network that reflects the needs of every community so I recommend everyone who travels in the area to get involved and provide their feedback on the proposals.”

The proposed changes include:

  • a new signalised walking and cycling (Toucan) crossing across Cleggs lane between Coniston Avenue and Old Lane;
  • a new signalised walking (Puffin) crossing across Cleggs Lane between Eastham Way and Amblecote Drive West;
  • a new raised speed table on Eastham Way between Trafford Drive and Buile Hill Avenue; plus
  • associated footway widening and provision of new tactile paving at crossing points.

Councillor Mike McCusker, lead member for planning, transport and sustainable development said: “This is a very exciting project that will provide Little Hulton residents with safer and better connected road crossings at three very busy junctions.

“It will be another vital link in the Greater Manchester-wide Bee Network programme that is delivering a joined-up system of walking and cycling across Salford and the wider city region to encourage residents to use active travel in their journeys.

“I would encourage residents to get involved in this consultation and provide their thoughts to help shape these much-needed improvements to their local roads.”

Anyone with views and opinions on the proposed improvements can have their say via the online survey.
