Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund – Romiley to Stockport Walking and Cycling Route pdf icon PDF 732 KB

To consider a report of the Corporate Director (Place) & Deputy Chief Executive.

 

Work has started on a Greater Manchester wide programme to make journeys on foot or by bike easier and more attractive. Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner has unveiled an innovative new plan to create a city region wide cycling and walking network that includes Stockport. The Bee Network will consist of more than 1800 miles of routes and will be the largest joined up system of walking and cycling routes in the UK.

 

In support of this ambition, the Mayor of Greater Manchester has allocated £160 million to the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund. This has been made possible thanks to the national government’s Transforming Cities Fund, which is investing in public and sustainable transport to improve productivity and spread prosperity. In Stockport a number of schemes have been developed one of which is the Romiley to Stockport Walking and Cycling Route.

 

This report provides results of a consultation on the Mayor’s Challenge Fund (MCF) Romiley to Stockport Walking and Cycling Route proposals, in particular by reducing traffic speeds, improving walking and cycling facilities and providing better crossing points of the main road and at side roads.

 

The Area Committee is requested to recommend that the Cabinet Member for Economy & Regeneration gives approval the implementation of the scheme and the legal advertising of the Traffic Regulation Orders contained in Appendix B to the report and, subject to the receipt of no objections within 21 days of the advertisement date, the subsequent making of the orders.
