Can these bins be located a little further along the path so they are well away from the critical and dangerous position at the junction ? twitter.com/Cyclinstructor/status/1055771979775700992 twitter.com/MMUEnvironment/status/1055830672596787200 Bins can be seen on google image as well tinyurl.com/yd3wujbfObstruction:

This is a great opportunity . To reopen the tunnel under Sainsbury's and reopen the approaches to provide a continuous cycleway to avoid all the problems as described in adjacent comments. This would be a big ticket and show that Manchester means business. madcyclelanesofmanchester.blogspot.com/2011/04/fallowfield-loop-sainsburys-tunnel.html Camapigns have been running for decades to reopen this tunnel originally the reopening was objected to by GMPolice . NB this line is NOT a mistake it's where the cycleway should be routed .

There is a tunnel under here which if reopened would solve lots of the problems here. I have added a comment on the mappinggm.org.uk/ which should appear on the map in the next few days . Other comments show that not many people know about this tunnel madcyclelanesofmanchester.blogspot.com/2011/04/fallowfield-loop-sainsburys-tunnel.html
I understand the tunnel has been filled in with a solid foam, I believe, to stop people sleeping there.

I also understand the tunnel was given the thumbs down by the civilian dept to Manchester Police that comments on architectural issues.
There is a ‘dog leg’ in the way the path was routed under Wilmslow Road that they said created a blind spot in which undesirables could hide in and accost cyclists.

Lobbyists for the Loop tried approaching Sainsbury’s to ask if they would consider providing lighting, CCTV, maybe even locking it at night - all things are negotiable - but at that time, ~2001, these ideas would not register. The cycling scene has changed in 20 to 30 years.

There is in fact some provision built in. If you go down the ramp by the side of Sainsbury’s there’s a curious break in the island in the middle of the road, and if you look back and lift yourself to look over the brick wall you can see where the cycle track was intended to emerge from under the other side of Wilmslow Road. If you are travelling there with any people crossing that section please make a slight detour to show them - to keep the idea alive, at least.

I understand the issue was raised at Cycle Forums, time after time. At one, the councillor (who was supportive but knew the reality) ruled that it would not be discussed again.

****
Interestingly a new councillor, who later became Mayor, (got deselected in May), got in touch when he discovered the tunnel. He ran into the brick wall.

Another idea is to route the FLoop around the far side of the Carpark at Sainsbury’s, avoiding conflict with the cars coming and going.

As the years rolled by, some of us think that the Fallowfield Loop was the one thing that pump primed a local sea change in the cycle culture - of the council. The original leaflets that got done called it the Fallowfield Loop, and the subsequent editions rechristened the leaflet as ‘The Manchester Cycleway’. Thanks to council engineers who are still around. Things like decent parking stands started appearing in a few places. It all coincided with the National Cycle Strategy and support from a new breed of councillors and town hall staff.

If it was happening now, I’m sure Sainsbury’s would have had to made a top notch tunnel, in consultation with users, before they got planning permission, from the more cycling conscious council that exists now.
The present junction is a dog’s breakfast, a headache for all the engineers who are tasked with creating a junction at the busy Wilmslow Road level.

101192Photo #101192Sackville St Manchester UPDATE The University have replied "Although this area is marked following the completion of GEIC building, it is ambiguous for cyclists at the moment we admit. We are currently working on changes to the paths around this route", After extensive construction work at the University - A new high kerb is placed on the cycle lane an obstacle for contraflow cycles heading South onto the off road section
www.cyclestreets.net/location/81043/ @OfficialUoM Sackville St @GMcycling #YCMIU #AWTH @Chris_Boardman @UoMsust
Suggest that a stop line is placed well back from the junction so that the cycle lane can be widened here repainted and realigned to join the off road bit. At the same time the whole of this kerb should be dropped in case a cyclist needs to avoid a stray pedestrian or inattentive driver.

99667Photo #99667Cross Street approaching John Dalton St and Princess St.
traffic signals do not detect cycle approach . A novice cyclist would cycle between the rail and the kerb - it is not certain whether there is a detection loop here, to pick any cycle approach.:

On approach Southbound the traffic signals on Cross St do not detect cycles. 1 cycle approached the junction near the kerb to avoid crossing the tram rail unnecessarily ; I waited through 3 phases of light changes while this signal remained on red.

Vehicle detection is by a MVD (or Moving Vehicle Detector) – this is a small unit on top of the traffic signal pole – and not a physical loop in the carriageway

· MVDs have a detection zone and this is angled to detect all cycles and trams on the approach to the signals


a fault os raised with signal maintenance company to check detection



If any signals are not detecting cycles in Greater Manchester then please email gmutc@tfgm.com and it will pass to the signal company directly.
