This project will create a new traffic-free route between Salford and Trafford Park. This includes reinstating a historic raised towpath across the Barton aqueduct, two new ramps, a wider towpath and surface improvements. It will complete a key gap in the Bridgewater Way route, making it easier for residents of Salford to reach key employers and retailers without using a car.
The scheme is currently under consultation.
