Bee Networks Crossings Proposals

Closed 13 Feb 2022

Opened 20 Jan 2022


The Bee Network, unveiled in 2018, is a plan to revolutionise travel across Greater Manchester, making active travel the number one choice for travelling to work, to school and to the shops. But this can only happen if trips by foot or by cycling are a safe and pleasant experience.

The network will be made up of more than 1,800 miles of routes and will be the largest joined-up system of walking and cycling routes in the UK. Once built, the network will better connect every community in Greater Manchester, benefiting 2.7 million people and making cycling and walking a real alternative to the car.

An important part of this work is to create new or improved road crossings for walkers and cyclists in your area. We hope this will make your roads safer, and encourage more people to walk and cycle for short journeys.

In partnership with Stockport Council, we are looking to make some changes in your area, with the aim of helping make the neighbourhood safer and more pleasant and of enabling more people to walk and cycle for short journeys.

The proposal is to slightly relocate the existing pedestrian crossing on Manchester Road, near the junctions with Bourne Street and All Saint’s Road, and to upgrade it to a Toucan crossing so that it can be used by both pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross the busy main road and conveniently access the adjacent retail park. The proposals for Stockport include a slight relocation of the existing crossing on Manchester Road near to the junction with Bourne Street in Heaton Norris.

We would like your feedback on the proposal. Your comments will be reviewed and inform how we proceed with the scheme.

Please take a look at the detailed proposals on the following pages before answering the questions.

For your views to count - please submit them by 23:59 on Sunday 13th February 2022.
