Greater Manchester's Cycling and Walking Network- Stockport Proposals

Closed 8 Nov 2019

Opened 8 Oct 2019

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 has developed a number of proposals which have been submitted for funding from MCF, with the expectation that further schemes will follow in the future.

We would like your views on the proposals, a public consultation is taking place between 8th October and 8th November 2019.

More information about the different elements of the proposals is available over the following pages, and you are encouraged to give us your views using the online survey.
