Greater Manchester launches ‘UK’s largest’ cycle network

Transport for Greater Manchester and cycling and walking commissioner Chris Boardman have revealed what is claimed to be the UK’s largest cycling network, covering 1,000 miles of routes and 75 miles of “Dutch-style” segregated bike lanes.

The project, named Beelines, follows Boardman’s report to Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham, published in December last year, and outlines around 1,000 miles of cycle routes, 1,400 new crossings, and more than 75 miles of segregated cycle lanes on existing roads.

Initial estimates suggest the routes will be “cost-effective and fast to implement” with the new infrastructure in place “as early as 2023”.

The programme is targeting at least one protected cycle corridor per local authority in Greater Manchester, and each borough has a target for the number of upgraded crossings, including:

  • 124 new or upgraded crossings in Bolton
  • 71 in Bury
  • 279 in Manchester
  • 80 in Oldham
  • 136 in Rochdale
  • 194 in Salford
  • 123 in Stockport
  • 63 in Tameside
  • 155 in Trafford
  • 183 in Wigan

Overall, the interventions are estimated to open up 92% of the existing network to cyclists across the whole of Greater Manchester.

A £160m cycling and walking challenge fund has already been made available to kick-start the project, and Planit-IE has created visualisations of how the proposed junctions and infrastructure will look.

Boardman said: “The proposed network is not for people who already cycle or walk for the majority of their journeys. Its focus is to enable the two thirds of people who currently use their car, as their main mode of transport.

“Numerous surveys have told us they do this because at present, cycling and walking doesn’t feel safe, attractive or easy. We need thousands of Greater Manchester residents to look out of their car windows and think: ‘That appeals to me.’ In the few places where we have safe, attractive infrastructure, that is exactly what has happened.”

Stockport Postal Sorting Office set for residential transformation

Stockport’s former sorting office on the corner of Exchange Street and the A6 looks set to be converted into apartments and commercial space after plans were recommended for approval.

Developers Rowlinson and Housing Capital Trust submitted plans to convert the building, which has been vacant since 2010, in January this year.

The plans, designed by architect Pozzoni, include 117 apartments and 12,000 sq ft of commercial, office, or retail space over the first two floors. According to the architect, the commercial space is designed for “modest food and drink facilities, retail space, offices, and flexible workspaces”.

Food and drink space is proposed for the lower ground floor and office space will be on both the lower ground and ground floor levels.

The housing mix includes 91 one-bedroom apartments of around 540 sq ft each, and 26 two-beds of around 800 sq ft. The homes will be available for private rent, and there will be around 19 apartments per floor.

An open atrium is planned from the first floor upwards which will provide amenity space for residents, with walkways leading to each of the apartments.

Rowlinson is due to act as main contractor for the project and has worked alongside Croft as transport planner and Mosaic Town Planning on the scheme.

The conversion has been recommended for approval at a meeting on Thursday, subject to a Section 106 agreement which includes a provision of £136,500 towards the creation of a new community sports hub at St Thomas’ recreation ground, alongside a contribution of around £32,000 towards children’s play areas.
