Mayors Challenge Fund – Tranche 1 Talbot Road/White City Way

The Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund (MCF) aims to kick start the delivery of the Greater Manchester Cycling and Walking Commissioner’s Made to Move strategy to make walking and cycling the natural choices for shorter journeys. As part of this initiative Trafford Council has been awarded circa. £500k funding from MCF to upgrade cycling and pedestrian facilities at the Talbot Road Junction with White City Way. A Cycle Optimised Protected Signals (CYCLOPS) style junction is being considered to provide safer crossing points across all arms of the junction for pedestrians and cyclists and prioritise the movement of people over vehicles.

Proposals include the replacement of uncontrolled crossing points, new protected cycle routes with links to existing cycle routes and new footways and islands across the junction.

Traffic signals are being considered for an upgrade to provide safer crossing points at:

  • White City Way: New pedestrian crossings across the junction
  • Talbot Road: New pedestrian crossings across the junction on all arms
  • Talbot Road: New protected cycle route through the junction in all directions linking up with the existing protected cycle route

Next Steps

Consultation will begin with local residents and businesses, running from the week commencing 14 February 2022 until 13 March 2022. Comments received from the consultation will be reviewed by the design team. This will be an opportunity for the proposals to be amended if needed based on the feedback received. The detailed design will then be undertaken before proceeding to the construction stage.
