Bury is to benefit from a £40 million investment across Greater Manchester in walking, wheeling and cycling infrastructure which will deliver the largest active travel network in the country.
Pedestrians, cyclists and Metrolink users will all benefit from two projects in the borough which have won £1.85m in funding.
Bury scheme details: Parkhills Road/Heywood Street Junctions – £0.6m. Radcliffe Metrolink Active Access Package – £1.25m.
Councillor Alan Quinn, cabinet member for the environment, climate change and operations, said: “We need to make it as easy as possible for people to walk, cycle and use public transport if we are to tackle congestion and clean up the air we breathe.
