This presentation, brought to you by CIHT North West, will involve a walkover of a £20m Active Travel scheme which will improve pedestrian and cycle links between the residential area of Ordsall, through Salford Quays, to the Trafford Boundary.
This scheme features one mile of a mixture of level segregated and shared use segregated new cycle track and parallel walking routes, six CYCLOPS junctions where cyclists are fully protected from motor traffic, plus eight bus stop bypasses. It will also provide increased capacity for motor traffic.
This event is intended to share Salford City Council’s (SCC) experiences of the practical application of the theory and design principles set out in LTN 1/20 – Cycle Infrastructure Design, on a major scheme. Paul Stagles, SCC’s Highways Lead on the project, will walk attendees through the scheme giving a warts-an’-all overview of the project along the way.
More information on the scheme can be found on the SCC website:-
This event is open to both members and non-members of CIHT. It will be of particular interest to Transport Planners, Highway Design Engineers and anyone with an interest in Active Travel schemes.
The exact meeting point will be confirmed ahead of the event by email.
