Walk Talk Repair

Streets for People Levenshulme and Burnage are organising a series of events to help promote walking and cycling within Levenshulme and Burnage. We have three sessions where we have teamed up with Platt Fields Bike Hub and Cycling UK to offer free basic bike repairs and advice.

These will be held on Saturday 22nd May 5th and 12th June between 11am to 2pm on Manor Road by Greenbank Playing fields in Levenshulme.

We are also organising community walks around the local neighbourhood on Saturday 22nd May at 11am, 12pm and 1pm starting from Green bank playing fields. These will be restricted in numbers and be socially distanced and give people a chance to see the changes to the local neighbourhood and discuss the issues around pollution and active travel.

To top it off we want to invite everyone to a leisurely social ride to Debdale Park on Sunday 13th June setting off at 1pm form the Fallowfield Loop at Crayfield Road.

The events are designed to help promote the benefits of walking and cycling and give people a chance to discuss the issues surrounding clean air and active travel in Levenshulme and Burnage.

Join the Dots

Streets for People are pleased to announce the launch of our new campaign: “Join the Dots”. This campaign has three formal demands of the council to improve transport infrastructure in Levenshulme and North Burnage.

Please sign our petition below if you want these demands to be fully addressed

Take action on boundary roads

Available evidence says that traffic on already busy boundary roads should not significantly increase in response to the filters, but this is not enough. Boundary roads need improvement through other measures, such as additional crossings and traffic calming measures to ensure that residents of these roads also benefit from the scheme, as well as the wider community.

Strengthen the network of modal filters to make safer routes rather than individually filtered streets

Modal filters work together by creating zones with few entrances and exits, removing through traffic. Poorly placed individual filters have reduced benefits, simply creating individual quiet streets. The placement of filters must be designed to create active transport routes that connect the entire community, not just those who live on the filtered streets.

Encourage walking and cycling via other measures, including School Streets and walking buses, improvements to pavements, provision for cycle parking, etc.

As well as reducing traffic, other barriers to active travel must too be tackled. These include but are not limited to: danger from school drop-off traffic, dangers from poorly maintained pavements, and a lack of safe storage for bicycles.

Manchester City Council currently have a live consultation on the Levenshulme and North Burnage active neighbourhood scheme. You can give feedback on the scheme as a whole, on specific filters, and on traffic calming and crossings you would like to see on the main roads.
