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.
