Salford is set for twelve months of delays and congestion caused by the ?15million, Government funded, Manchester and Salford Inner Relief Route improvement scheme (MSIRR), which begins on 29th August with work on the junctions around Regent Road, Trinity Way and A57 Mancunian Way.

"During the works Regent Road, from Oldfield Road to the Mancunian Way, will be reduced from two lanes to one lane in each direction" states Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) "Journey times are expected to increase significantly, especially during the morning and evening peaks.

"During the morning peak, travel into the city centre via the M602, Regent Road and on to the Mancunian Way is expected to increase from around 15-20mins to at least 25-30mins" TfGM adds "During the evening peak, journeys out of the city centre along the Mancunian Way, Regent Road and on to the M602 are expected to increase from around 20-25mins to at least 40-45mins."

The work is also expected to cause knock-on delays on other routes, including the M602 and Mancunian Way, Chester Road, Princess Road, the East Lancs Road, Trinity Way, Hyde Road, Stockport Road and Ashton Old Road.

Transport for Greater Manchester has launched a travel advice page that will provide up-to-date travel information, expected journey times and alternative travel options*...but in the meantime it is listing Park and Ride sites across Greater Manchester, and advises that "Drivers should consider using public transport where it's an option ? or cycle or walk if they are able to do so. Where possible, working from home could be considered"...

TfGM adds that the works "will ultimately increase capacity at the six key junctions by up to 20%, reducing congestion and delays..."

I think a petition should be launched to suspend the bus lane on the crescent during these roadworks, to ease the congestion and stress these works are going to cause, the council suspended the bus lane outside Salford royal for roadworks in that area and the bus lane is still suspended even though the roadworks are complete!

Can't wait to sample it! The East Lancs is already a joke with the guide bus root causing problems from the Heights to Swinton.

OVER 100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, 118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON 47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just 47 per week, or 190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
