Well, what a difference a year makes. This time in 2017 we were in the middle of the highly divisive UA92 and Refreshed Stretford Masterplan consultation.

They also have an online questionnaire for people to give their views, deadline is 19 December 2017. Continue reading “A tale of two masterplans”
TfGM have recently circulated designs for the Metrolink Trafford Park Line, including details of the changes that’ll affect cycling in the area.
