Updated: Please support the Oxford Road Cycle Scheme (again!)
At the Manchester Cycle Forum on Tuesday 28th June, a number of changes to the cycle infrastructure designs on the Oxford Road corridor were outlined. Ironically, these changes appear to have come about as a result of concerns raised about a different scheme – the Cycle City Ambition Grant (CCAG) route from Rusholme to Didsbury.
Love Your Bike has consistently supported the case for high quality – protected space for cycling on the Oxford Road corridor and elsewhere. We continue to support the Oxford Road scheme but believe that some of the proposed changes will make the cycling facilities less attractive, less comfortable and less safe.
We have until 12th July to send in comments on the proposed changes. Love Your Bike have set up a simple email action (see link below) to help people to show their support for the Oxford Road scheme but ask for the proposed changes to be modified.
Join us in campaigning for the scheme to be as good a possible, by completing our simple email action.
