This scheme relates to permanent and temporary works in connection with the installation of cycle lanes for the Cycle City Ambition Grant Routes 1-4 in Salford.

The scheme requires minor remedial work and preparation of the road surfaces, minor works to pavements & kerbing, tree pit construction and traffic safety & management.  It will encompass visual narrowing design techniques outlined by Transport for Greater Manchester.  Methods implemented for the cycleway in this scheme include the use of Median Strips and Edging Strips, with physical islands strategically located as physical barriers.

 

Route 1 will link the residential areas of Broughton and Kersal to employment centres at Salford Quays and Manchester City Centre by implementing, where possible, segregated cycling facilities along Great Clowes Street / Blackfriars Road.  A route between Blackfriars Road and Chapel Street to link the University of Salford and National Cycle Network.

 

Routes 2 and 3a will include the provision of new cycle facilities along Liverpool Street between Langworthy Road and Albion Way connecting Pendleton to the City Centre.

 

Route 4 is located on Liverpool Road, Irlam and comprises part of the City Cycle Ambition Grant Scheme that will provide improved safer commuter links for cyclists on Liverpool Road.  The aim on this stretch of carriageway is to create the visual illusion that the carriageway boundary is moved closer to the centre of the road, reducing the visual width of the carriageway forces motorists to observe cyclists more increasing motorists awareness of the cyclists, hence minimising danger for cyclists.
