2. Manchester to Stockport: temporary cycle route

Stockport was successful in the first round of funding and as a result a 3.3Km long cycle route using quiet streets parallel to the A6 between Heaton Chapel and Stockport Town Centre has been created. The scheme also includes:

  • a cycle only filter point
  • an altered junction priority to speed cyclists on their way

The route includes:

  • Tatton Road North: cycle street
  • Tatton Road North/Heaton Moor Road/Tatton Road South: temporary signal junction
  • Tatton Road South: cycle street
  • Heaton Road/Parsonage Road: changed junction priorities
  • Ashburn Road/ Heaton Road: changed junction priorities
  • Ashburn Road: signed route
  • Bowerfold Lane to Higher Bury Street: off-road shared use path.
  • Higher/Lower Bury Street: parking restrictions and surface improvement.
  • Travis Brow: existing shared use paths and Toucan crossings
  • King Street West: existing Toucan Crossing
  • Heaton Lane: partial filter point
