About Trafford Road Site Visit

MediaCityUK and the Quays is already one of the UK’s most successful regeneration projects with over 1,000 businesses providing 30,000 jobs and 10,000 residents living there. An independent economic assessment concluded that employment will increase by a further 18,500 jobs and the population will grow by 34,000 by 2040. With such a high volume of growth predicted, Salford City Council conducted a feasibility study to understand the potential impacts of this growth on the highway network. The study concluded that the Trafford Road corridor would become increasingly congested and would therefore hinder the predicted growth for the area. In order to support this growth the study recommended a series of junction improvements on this corridor.

The Trafford Road corridor itself is a key transport artery which runs from the M602 down through to Trafford and provides a vital highway connection to MediaCityUK.

The project aims to improve the infrastructure to deliver:

- Improved capacity for vehicles

- Reduce congestion

- Improve pedestrian and cycle connectivity

- Support continued growth

- Better neighbourhood connections

The scheme will achieve this by introducing updated layouts at key junctions and
enhancing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists along and across the corridor.
