Making improvements to the Salford Bolton bus network

What we did: 

The road safety team completed stages 1-4 road safety audits to assess whether the design of junctions on the route presented potential risk to road users. Recommendations to the design were presented to Transport for Greater Manchester, who took on board and actioned the necessary safety measures. The team also improved pedestrian facilities generally as part of the scheme to ensure safer bus stop environments for the vulnerable road users.

The outcome: 

The safety recommendations reported to TfGM to action were all considered to ensure that any potential risks along the route were minimised.
