The Reasons are

Residents and Local Councillors have raised concerns regarding pedestrian safety when trying to cross Manchester Road West, particularly school children travelling from/to St Paul’s Peel Primary School on Stocksfield Drive to Peel Park during peak times. The nearest formal crossing point to this location is the junction of Manchester Road West with Cleggs Lane some 330m away.


Between September 2017 and May 2022 there has been a total of 16 recorded collisions along Manchester Road West, 4 were classified as serious and 12 classified as slight severity. A total of 21 casualties have been recorded, of which 4 were pedestrians (3 slight, 1 serious) and 2 were cyclists (both slight severity).  


Between May – June 2021 a consultation in conjunction with The Little Hulton and Walkden Community Committee was carried out to determine the preferred option for a proposed crossing in this location. 85% of responses were in favour of introducing a signalised crossing on the A6 Manchester Road West between the junction of Kenyon Way and Stocksfield Drive.


The scheme proposes to install a signalised Toucan Crossing, suitable for cyclists and pedestrians, incorporating wider footways on both approaches to the crossing to facilitate shared footways for cyclists and pedestrians. Please see attached General Arrangement drawing 010557-SCC-HGN-XX-DR-C-0001 for further details.


Invitations to tender under the Lot 1 Minor Civils Framework were conducted by issuing a mini competition to the six contractors. Four contractors submitted a tender and based on the scoring criteria Rosgal Ltd received the highest score and was the most economically advantageous tender based on the quality, social value and pricing assessment, see tender summary table below:
