TfGM releases animal-fueled infrastructure video

Transport for Greater Manchester has released an info-packed new video depicting the alterations taking place on Oxford Road.

The clip, which is available to watch below, uses a host of commuting anteaters and Brompton-riding bears to inform the public about the pedestrian and cycling changes in the area, which include the creation of new ‘Dutch-style’ cycle lanes and priority crossings.

As shown in the animation, general traffic is now prohibited from travelling through new bus gates on Oxford Road, which restrict access to sections of the corridor between Hathersage Road and Portland Street. These gates are in force between 6am and 9pm, seven days a-week.
