Consultation Opens on North East Gateway Route
Consultation has opened on Manchester City Council’s proposed walking and cycling improvement route labelled North East Gateway.
The proposed route seeks to address some existing issues: “Physical barriers to cycling and walking, like the River Irk, Ashton Canal, and railway viaducts Junctions which are not pedestrian/cyclist friendly (Oldham Road, Rochdale Road and Dantzic Street)”…
…and some issues brought about by the council’s car-centric Great Ancoats Street scheme: “The need to use Great Ancoats Street, which is not currently suitable for cycling for people of all ages and abilities”
The consultation is an opportunity for those who live in the area to make their feelings known about a range of implications of the proposal, including the prospect of more green spaces and one-way systems to create safer walking spaces.
The consultation window remains open until 30 April 2020.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the council will not be arranging public consultation events, so you can respond to the online survey by clicking here, or to submit your queries on the proposal send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
