The latest high-profile projects to be built as part of Greater Manchester’s cycling and walking master plan will be considered by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) next week.

Three new projects have today been put forward for funding. If approved, it would see around £5.7 million provided from the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund with a further £15.1 million coming from council contributions.

The latest projects bring the total planned spend on cycling and walking across Greater Manchester to around £67 million. A total of 24 confirmed projects so far will deliver 144 new and upgraded crossings and junctions as well as 26 miles of new cycling and walking routes. This includes nine miles of Dutch-style cycle lanes that are separated from motor traffic.
