The final designs for traffic filters in Levenshulme have been revealed.

Plans, which have caused controversy in the past, include the moving of two pre-existing filters.

Meanwhile, two new filters have been proposed for Milwain Road and Linden Park.

When the planters were put in place at the beginning of this year, there was confusion and some residents felt like there had not been enough instruction.

The feedback from residents has been a key part of the development of the Levenshulme and Burnage Active Travel Neighbourhood which has been in progress for more than three years.

This has led to the filters on Henderson Street and Manor Road to be moved slightly to new positions on the same streets.

The filter on Manor Road will be moved away from its secluded location, further up the street to the junction with Rushmere Avenue.

One of the reasons behind the move of the filters on Manor Road is due to flytipping in the area.

The filter on Henderson street will be moved to the junction with Nall Street, due to parking issues.

By reaching this stage in the process, plans are also going ahead for a larger scheme than was originally planned.

Meanwhile, revised plans for the Burnage section of the scheme have also been brought forward.

A consultation is being planned for the near future for residents to have their say on the final plans.

The next stage of the project will also see the updated designs for the project as a whole be made public.

Councillor Tracey Rawlins, executive member for environment said: “The development of our Active Travel Neighbourhood plan has been a fascinating insight into the priorities and aspirations of people living in Manchester.

“It’s been made clear throughout this process that residents want safer, greener neighbourhoods and by embracing active travel and learning new ways to get around we will achieve those goals.

“This scheme is stronger on the back of extensive community engagement and I’m excited to take the final designs to the public.

“This scheme should be seen as the beginning, and I look forward to seeing our Active Travel Neighbourhoods grow.”
