Overview

Work has started on a Greater Manchester-wide programme to make journeys on foot or by bike much easier and more attractive.

Chris Boardman, Greater Manchester’s Cycling and Walking Commissioner, has unveiled an innovative new plan to create a city-region-wide cycling and walking network that includes Stockport. The Bee Network will consist of more than 1,800 miles of routes and will be the largest joined-up system of walking and cycling infrastructure in the UK.

In support of this ambition, the Mayor of Greater Manchester has allocated £160 million to the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund (MCF). This has been made possible thanks to the national government’s Transforming Cities Fund, which is investing in public and sustainable transport to improve productivity and spread prosperity.

Stockport Council developed a number of proposals which have been submitted for funding from MCF, with the expectation that further schemes will follow in the future. These proposals were subject to public consultation in October and November 2019. You can view the Consultation report and proposed schemes by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page. 

The results of the consultation and associated officer recommendations are intended to be presented to Area Committees in January 2020. The Area Committee cycle schedule can be found here. 

This page will be updated once the decision on the proposed schemes has been made.
