Road safety audits on the Leigh Ellenbrook guided busway

As part of a scheme to connect Leigh and Wigan to Salford and Manchester, our road safety audit team undertook stages 1-4 road safety audits on the North West’s first guided Busway. 

The scheme was put in place as a preferred mode of transport to Metrolink, operating in a similar way to tram networks as the buses are guided along the majority of the route by a fixed track arrangement.

What we did:  

The team made recommendations and highlighted any concerns with feasibility and detailed designs, suggesting tweaks to the design work that would ensure the operations ran smoothly and reduced the risk to the user. 

This involved compiling a report for Transport for Greater Manchester, having completed stages one to four road safety audits.  

Services UV provided: 
  • Desktop reporting 
  • Site visits 
  • Collision investigation 
  • Road safety engineering – design recommendations 
The outcome:

TfGM considered all recommendations made in the report by our road safety audit team.  

Further assessments are usually required three years after the initial stage 4 safety audit to ensure maximum safety of the scheme and to re-assess what may need addressing after that amount of time.

Carpino Place was chosen for this development so new residents are able to come and go from their houses with more ease and to encourage more use of the cycle path overall. The project was delivered on behalf of English Cities Fund, Salford City Council's development partner for the Salford Central area, as part of the Carpino Place residential development scheme.
