Scheme Chapel Street East Phase 2

Protected cycle lanes along Blackfriars Road/Street and Chapel Street and enhanced provision for people cycling, walking, scooting and wheeling at the junction of Chapel Street and Blackfriars Street.

Scheme description

Continuing the facilities proposed for Chapel Street East Phase 1, the scheme would support the achievement of a high quality route for pedestrians and cyclists along Chapel Street and adjoining roads between Blackfriars Road and Manchester.

This will include improvements to the junction of Blackfriars Street and Chapel Street and facilities along Blackfriars Street. As an integral part of this approach, an improved route for pedestrians and cyclists will be created into Greengate. The preliminary design for this scheme is scheduled for the end of 2021.

More information

Consultation took place on plans for Blackfriars Street in February 2021.

Changes to Blackfriars Street and Chapel Street have been trialed as part of Salford's response to the coronavirus pandemic, creating safe space for people to cycle or walk their journey in order to save space on public transport for those who really need it. Following further consultation an interim scheme will be introduced on Blackfriars Street whilst permanent plans are finalised.
