A627 Cavendish Street Crossing Scheme 

  • As part of the Mayor’s Challenge Fund (MCF), Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) in partnership with Tameside Council are proposing to upgrade the existing zebra crossing on Cavendish Street at the junction with Higher Wharf Street to a shared, signal-controlled, pedestrian and cycle crossing.
  • The scheme will support the delivery of the Bee Active Network.  This is a proposed network of walking, wheeling and cycling routes throughout Greater Manchester (GM), which will enable GM to become the first city region in the UK to have a fully joined up cycling and walking network; connecting every neighbourhood and community in Greater Manchester, and ensuring that cycling, wheeling and walking can become a viable choice for those that don’t do so already.
  • We can unlock the potential of our local roads and communities by providing easy crossing points, thereby creating more opportunities to walk, wheel, and cycle, which is the aim of this scheme.  The crossing points will be across busy roads meaning that cycling, wheeling and walking can more readily become the natural choice for local trips in the area.
  • The existing zebra crossing will be decommissioned, to be replaced with a signalised toucan crossing, and the footways will be widened to accommodate space for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Work is due to start on Monday 8 Jan 2024 and will take approximately 4 months to complete.
