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.

Next Steps

Consultation with local residents and businesses has now finished and the results have been analysed. Read the Consultation Report. Detailed design has been completed and procurement is underway. The next stage is to submit a Full Business Case for GMCA Approval, after which construction mobilisation can begin, if successful.
