Residents, businesses and stakeholders are invited to have their say to help shape safe, active travel across Bolton in a consultation which will launch on Monday 22nd March.
Bolton Council is committed to enabling more people to walk and cycle for their everyday journeys, many of which are already local, and to providing attractive, ‘liveable’ streets and public spaces, with slower traffic speeds and safe routes. Promoting active travel has health, air quality, environmental and economic benefits, so is a key part of the council’s response to the Climate Emergency declaration and our responsibility to improving population health.
To this end, Bolton Council is introducing enhanced cycle lanes on a number of key corridors identified through the successful #SafeStreetsSaveLives public consultation. The schemes have been made possible through Greater Manchester’s allocation of £19m from the Government’s Emergency Active Travel Fund and the Active Travel Fund.
A58 Moss Bank Way
Bolton Council is proposing to enhance walking and cycle infrastructure on the A58 Moss Bank Way to promote and encourage safe walking and cycling and help ease social distancing pressure.
The proposed scheme seeks to enhance the existing cycle lane provision through road space reallocation and the installation of ‘Wand Orcas’, which provide light separation from the motor traffic, providing safe space for people cycling as well as pedestrians.
Key benefits include:
• Encouraging more people to walk and cycle, providing associated health and wellbeing benefits, reducing congestion, and improving air quality.
• Greater protection for cyclists.
• Support COVID-19 recovery.
