Consultation on first phase of Stretford to Quays cycleway


Long waited movement on the Stretford to Quays cycleway seems imminent as the Wharfside Way element is being put out to consultation.

Got to admit that travelling from the stadium, I’d normally take John Gilbert Way to get to Fraser Place but I can see that this route serves a lot more.

From a purely technical point of view, the plans include Trafford’s first iteration of designed ‘Sparrow’ crossings. The fact that the Sparrow name is being applied here is nice because it came out a conversation local cyclist Sam Tate was having. So, it’s ours and there are worse things to be famous for.
