Have your say on local cycling & walking improvements

During the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, Trafford Council installed temporary cycle lanes on the roads around Stretford Public Hall, on the A56 Chester Road and Edge Lane. This was to promote walking, wheeling and cycling choices for shorter journeys.

The council held a consultation in November 2021 on the future of the temporary cycle lanes. This initial consultation report can be viewed here: A56 Consultation Report

The feedback from this consultation was then used to shape new proposals for an active travel scheme along the A56 Corridor. The first phase of this scheme involved the introduction of active travel improvements on the A5014 Chester Road. This phase was built in March of this year.

Trafford Council now wants you to have your say on the proposals for the second phase of this scheme. These proposals aim to keep the existing layout of the temporary cycle scheme on A56 Chester Road. Parts of this layout will be improved to boost cyclist and pedestrian safety.

You can view the proposals and have your say online, on the consultation website here.

We are also hosting an in-person consultation event, here at Stretford Public Hall on Thursday 17th August, 9am – 7pm.

The consultation on these proposals runs from 24th July to 10th September 2023.
