Manchester City Council, with partners Sustrans and Transport for Greater Manchester, have big plans to upgrade the popular cycling (and walking) route along the Fallowfield Loop, and they have launched a consultation to prioritise the improvements.
The traffic-free route links Chorlton in the west to Gorton and Fairfield in the east, running along the southern edge of Whalley Range ward with a ground-level link on Athol Road. Funding for this work has been earmarked from the Mayor’s Challenge Fund. Assia Shah, Whalley Range Labour candidate in the next local election, says “The Council are seeking the views of all users of this much-loved amenity on how this money should be spent. If you ever spend time cycling, jogging or even walking the dog on the Fallowfield Loop, I urge you to let them know how you think it can best be improved”.
The consultation closes on Friday 21 August. For more information and to take part, see the web page here.
