Scheme Trafford Bee Network Crossing

Busy roads create community severance and can lead to residents feeling they have no choice but to take the car, even on short trips. This TfGM project will strategically place crossings across GM to unlock a significant portion of the Bee Network

Scheme description

Busy roads can sever communities and make people feel they have no choice but to drive, even on short trips.

In partnership with Trafford Council, we plan to consult on delivering two new walking and cycling crossing facilities in Trafford as part of the GM-wide Bee Network Crossings scheme. These new crossings will make it easier for local residents to walk and cycle as they will be across busy roads. In Trafford, this involves:

  • Implementing a new controlled crossing across Dunham Road at the junction with Gorsey Lane, Altrincham.

  • Upgrading the crossing facilities at the junction of Shaftesbury Avenue and Aimson Road East, Timperley.

Additional Local Engagement

We are undertaking an additional engagement exercise with a small number of streets that may be affected by these proposals. This exercise is supplementary to the original public consultation. All views from the public consultation are currently in the process of being analysed and once this additional engagement exercise is complete, a report detailing the views of residents will be published.

This additional engagement exercise will last for two weeks and the deadline for feedback is Wednesday 24 November 2021.

Anyone with views and opinions on the proposed changes can express their view via the online survey available at:
