Urban Vision’s landscape architects provided design services to improve and extend Ellenbrook, Roe Green, Linnyshaw and Tyldesley looplines, creating high quality, striking traffic-free cycling and walking routes, working in partnership with the Council.
All looplines required extensive site clearance works, underpass refurbishments, footpath widening and landscaping. The landscape team also placed new signage on all routes to help people direct users to key destinations throughout the City.
The team also cleared vegetation and trees where necessary to accommodate the routes, replaced trees where possible, combined pedestrian and cycle crossings, improved drainage along the route and provided new signage.
Ellenbrook loopline, which was made from 50% of recycled tyres, required entrances accessible to all users including people on bikes, wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Residents on the outskirts of Salford can now enjoy traffic-free access into the centre of Salford and Manchester via these newly refurbished and upgraded walking and cycling routes.
The looplines are nationally recognised, award-winning traffic-free routes. They won top awards at the National Transport Award in 2017 and a CIHT North West Award in 2018.
Given the speed at which the scheme was designed and has been constructed, the project has gone remarkably smoothly and this is largely due to the efforts of Urban Vision’s Landscape design teamCatriona Swanson, Salford City Council
Urban Vision has been a valuable partner since we first formed the alliance. The partnership extension will provide further efficiency gains and more savings for the Council, without affecting service quality and performance.Jim Taylor Salford’s City Director
