UPDATE: 24/06/2019 – Updated Bee Network map published plus 15 new schemes
One year on from the launch of its proposals for the UK’s largest cycling and walking network, an updated Bee Network map has today been published on MappingGM which sees the total length of the proposed network increase by 77% - from almost 1,000 miles to more than 1,800 miles. The total number of new and upgraded crossings has also increased from 2,000 to 2,400.
The changes to the Bee Network map have taken into account feedback from local authorities and over 4,000 public comments received when it was first published in June last year.
The map now includes two Beeway route layers:
- Beeways, which will mainly be on quiet streets, connected by new or upgraded crossing facilities of main roads
- Busy Beeways, which will be on busier roads where protected cycle lanes may be needed, similar to those recently installed on Oxford Road
The map shows what we believe is needed to get many more people cycling and walking for local journeys in Greater Manchester. This doesn’t mean that we know whether all this is possible to deliver yet! The map will continue to be updated as the network is built over the coming years, and the detailed routes of all the Beeways will change as we do more work on what is possible to construct. In particular, many of the Busy Beeways will require significant changes to the street to enable safe cycling. At present, we are only at the very early stages of investigating most of these Busy Beeways.
TfGM also today announced that a total of 15 new Bee Network cycling and walking schemes with a total value of £129m will be considered by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) this week. These schemes have been added to the ‘confirmed infrastructure’ layer of the map. For further information visit www.tfgm.com/bee.
