Scheme Rochdale Lane Active Travel Corridor

improvements along the length of Rochdale/Sandy lane to facilitate active modes including footway widening, contraflow cycle facilities, traffic calming and crossings

Scheme description

The scheme proposes to:

  • Reduce the volume of vehicles using this route

  • Control the speed of traffic on this section of the network

  • Provide cycling facilities

  • Provide a safe pedestrian route

  • Make enhancements for vulnerable road users

This will be achieved by:

  • Implementing a modal filter at Chapel Street / Sandy Lane.

  • Providing continuous side road crossings.

  • Footway widening.

  • A one-way traffic route with a cycle contraflow created by reallocating the existing carriageway back to cyclists.

  • Providing kerb to kerb junction plateaus and crossings.

  • Developing the existing 20mph zone by extending it to cover the majority of the district centre to encourage modal shift and to reduce average motor vehicle speeds, road traffic injury severities and collision frequencies involving pedestrians and cyclists.

  • Installing speed cushions.
