Publish date:

The consultation on a Manchester to Chorlton cycleway is being extended to 25th January.

The cycling and walking route is being proposed by Manchester City Council, the One Trafford Partnership, Transport for Greater Manchester and Greater Manchester's cycling and walking commissioner Chris Boardman.

The new five kilometre route will run along Barlow Moor Road, Manchester Road, Upper Chorlton Road and Chorlton Road.

£13.4 million is being invested in the route, with funding coming from the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Challenge Fund and the Government’s Cycle Cities Ambition Grant.

Councillor Angeliki Stogia, executive member for the environment, planning and transport, said: “The level of public interest in our scheme to transform this route for the benefit of all road users has been unprecedented and with responses continuing to pour in, we’re extending the consultation by another fortnight, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their say.

“We’re really excited by the possibilities of this scheme and hope that it can become an exemplar project to inspire further cycleways citywide. 

“But first, we want to make sure that everyone who lives locally or who uses the route has the opportunity to take a look at the proposed design and have their voice heard.”

Boardman said: “I’m thrilled that the scheme has got people in Chorlton, Whalley Range and beyond talking. 

“These plans will give people a true alternative to the car and I want to encourage everyone to respond to the consultation and have their say.”
