Works to complete a £2.5 million cycling route linking MediaCityUK with central Manchester are set to win funding from Salford City Council, Place North West reports.

The route runs along the Liverpool Street Corridor, from Chapel Street to Regent Road to the south, and also forms part of the National Cycle Network.

However, a report to the council said the existing corridor was currently in “a poor condition” and is “dominated by vehicular traffic with very few opportunities for pedestrians to cross, and the surrounding environment is very industrial”.

As a result, the council is reportedly looking to release £100,000 of funding to get the project under way.

Subject to approval on 8th January, the council has budgeted £2.5 million towards the project including around £1.7 million of construction costs.

Detailed designs are due to begin this month and will be presented in September, and works are set to begin in April 2020.
