Stockport Council is doing excellent work across the borough to enable its residents to leave the car at home and cycle or walk local journeys. The number of schemes currently on the way shows the level ambition they have to create a connected network across communities. The Gillbent Road crossing is a fine example of how removing the risks posed by junctions can open up a wide range of routes to connect people to the places they want to get to, with confidence. Making crossing the road easy and safe, no matter how you’re travelling, is key to getting people to have a go at walking to the shops, or doing the school run by bike. Great work Stockport!
