The angle Minshull Street divides off the A6 causes fast turning traffic, dangerous for the many pedestrians crossing the city centre road, and conflict over the bus lane on the left, dangerous for cyclists and making it less useful for bus ... [more]

For cyclists crossing into Northern Gateway (Smedley road) from Woodlands road

Dangerously narrow and congested busy street, with a lot of parked vehicles adding to the mix. Ban all motorised vehicles (maybe just during the day to allow for deliveries - 7am-7pm), and make it exclusive to pedestrians/cycles.

Much better protection of the cycle way. I use it in the mornings but dare not in the evenings; pedestrians cross into it and cars turn across it with very little warning.

Bollards to filter traffic here would stop rat running through Redhill and Radium Street

Potential for filtered neighborhood to reduce rat running

Potential for filtered neighborhood to avoid rat run

Stop up road at with modal filter at level crossing. Shouldn’t be a through route and diversion would only add 4 mins to journey from Oldham road to Ashton new road.

Close the road to eliminate a rat run, dangerous parking, enable social distancing and help primary school children to walk and cycle to school safely. Close Beaver Road with the junction with Atwood and between the school and the Churc ... [more]

Beech Road should be opened to pedestrians and cyclists and closed to private motor vehicles for most of the day. The surrounding streets will then need to be appropriately filtered.

Road closure is required to prevent rat running vehicles from using this road to avoid traffic lights at Wilmslow road.

Manchester Chester Road This road had major works done recently and had lane closures but the world did not end ! Email to A tempo ... [more]

Speed limit 20mph

Bus and cycle only through Withington

Closure to parking - permit parking only on one side of road.

Cars speed down Lingard Road despite the 20mph zone. Cars often park blocking residents driveways when doing the school run / working / visiting Northenden. It would be good to block off for Lingard Road resident access only or cycle rout ... [more]

Close this shared pavement to parking/road users. The residents have access to their drives but are blocking the pavement by parking their vehicles on the pavement instead of their drives.

Change brett street to one way to prevent it being used as a by pass around palatine road

Great Marlborough Street is used as a rat run and attracts anti-social car driving. The railway arch should be filtered to only allow people on foot and bicycles.

Fast motor traffic uses Lower Byrom Street as a rat run, there should be a full or partial closure to make it safer for residents and visitors.

Narrow pavements on both sides

Tib St is busy with opening shops and queues for them. Close the road so people can queue safely to support local businesses.

Close this to parking - used by locals anyway who can walk/cycle.

This is a main pedestrian link from New Islington and Ancoats to the city centre. This can become dangerous to maintain social distancing due to narrow footways, parked cars and vehicles. A closure here would allow vehicles to route along B ... [more]

Edge Street does not require through traffic and filtered closure is needed to mitigate increased use following the closure of Thomas Street.

Close to all but buses and traxis accessing the station. This will allow removal of the turning lane so the pavement can be widened between Victoria Street and Hunts Bank.

Reduce ratrunning/speeding vehicles. Install modal filter here.

Narrow pavements and essential local shops - which already occupy quite a lot of pavement space themselves. Copson Street should be closed to motor vehicles from Wilmslow Rd to Hill St (retaining motor access via Moorfield St and Patten St ... [more]

River Street used as rat run - needs closing

Manchester Victoria Station Cycleway across tram lines and on to Chethams school of music. Road works here with temporary traffic lights with no thought whatsoever for the stranded cyclists here !

Cycle parking is removed (see Google image of how it looked before) to make way for commercial activities. Cycle infrastructure does generate business though. Planning obligat ... [more]
