Greater Manchester cycling and walking infrastructure proposal
A total of 18 new cycling and walking schemes with a total value of £137m will be considered by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) next week as part of Greater Manchester’s Bee Network:
If approved this would take the number of endorsed schemes so far to 42 and will deliver 319 new and upgraded crossings and junctions as well as 70 miles of new cycling and walking routes. This includes 14 miles of Dutch-style cycle lanes that are protected from motor traffic.
Bee Network is a cycling and walking infrastructure proposal showing existing and proposed crossing points needed to open up communities for cycling and walking across Greater Manchester.
The first iteration of the map was published in June 2018. The map shows the existing and proposed crossing points needed to open up communities for cycling and walking across Greater Manchester. It also shows the proposed routes for the Bee Network network and initial proposals for roads where segregated Dutch-style cycling lanes could be built. It has been developed in collaboration with all 10 Greater Manchester local authorities and co-ordinated by Transport for Greater Manchester. The map will be updated quarterly. Public engagement with this first draft of the proposals is actively encouraged.
