Dunham Road at the junction with Gorsey Lane - Trafford Bee Network Crossing

Trafford Council and TfGM are making some changes to Dunham Road at the junction with Gorsey Lane. This involves a new and safer controlled crossing, as well as installing cycling facilities for improved travel by walking, wheeling and cycling on the Bee Network.

Consultations were carried out with residents in November 2021 and the Executive Decision to progress the scheme was made in October 2022. Read more about the meeting and Executive Decision.

About the Bee Network

The Bee Network is a Greater Manchester-wide programme to make journeys on foot or by bike much easier and more attractive. Works will take place on Dunham Road (A56), Gorsey Lane, St Margaret’s Road and Devisdale Road and will commence in early September through to the beginning of December with TfGM as the lead agent on our behalf.

These works are being funded from the Mayor’s Challenge Fund (MCF), where funding has been made available to deliver the Bee Network across Greater Manchester. The vision is to make it easier and more attractive for people to move around Greater Manchester by foot or bike, especially for shorter journeys, and to help create a more connected and accessible region. 

Details of the improvement works

The new segregated cycling and walking crossing across Dunham Road at the junction with Gorsey Lane will provide a facility for people to cross a busy main road. The improvements include: 

  • The footway will be extended on both corners of St Margaret’s Road and at its junction with Dunham Road with a pedestrian island to improve the crossing facility across St Margaret’s Road.
  • Gorsey Lane will be made one-way in a southerly direction from the church access to its junction with Dunham Road. This means there will be no access to Gorsey Lane from Dunham Road. Access will be through Highgate Road or Booth Road. Restrictions will be put in place to ensure one-way section remains clear of parked vehicles.
  • Devisdale Road will be changed and access to Dunham Road will be through St Margaret’s Road. 
  • The parking on the north side of the access road between St Margaret’s Road and Devisdale Road will be removed and the number of bays reduced on the south side. 
  • A bus stop/coach parking bay will be introduced on St Margaret’s Road (west side) south of its junction with Devisdale Road, for school bus drop-offs and pick-ups.
