Junction Improvements

We are improving the junctions in our borough to improve capacity and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

Section 106 Schemes

The Major Projects Team have received Section 106 funding to create safer junctions for all users, improve traffic flow and encourage more active travel.

Below is a list of schemes the team will be developing throughout the year. This page will be updated regularly as more information and plans become available to share.

Market Street Crossing

This scheme will upgrade the current zebra crossing on Market Street to a puffin crossing to enable safer crossing for pedestrians visiting Standish Town Centre.

Bradley Lane shuttle signals

This scheme will improve road safety by removing the existing conflict with two-way traffic under the bridge and enable pedestrians to walk under the bridge safely under traffic signal control.

Red Rock Canal Bridge signals

This scheme will upgrade the current traffic signals to enable the reduction of delays and potential accidents.

Mosley Common Road Junction Improvements

This scheme will deliver a new left turn lane to assist with traffic flow coming out of Mosley Common Road, to reduce congestion along this busy route.

Salford Council are delivering a scheme on the other arms of this junction, including new crossing points to make it much safer for pedestrians to negotiate the junction.

Minor Ground Investigations

To determine the extent of any underground utilities cables and pipes that may need to be diverted, minor ground investigations (trial holes) will be carried out in the carriageway during w/c 29th May. To safely carry out this work, one lane will be closed, and traffic management put in place.
