The scheme represents the next phase of delivery of the Salford Central Masterplan, with funding secured from Transport for Greater Manchester and Salford City Council’s developer partner English Cities Fund.
The highways scheme when completed will enable access to an adjacent vacant site, which is to be transformed into high quality housing by English Cities Fund. The public realm improvement works will help enhance the local environment, attract investment and provide a setting where people will aspire to live and work.
Designed by Urban Vision on behalf of Salford City Council, the scheme involves the construction of new road and pavements on Cleminson Street using high quality natural paving materials in keeping with the Adelphi-Bexley Square Conservation Area, as well as the installation of, new drainage, modern new street lighting to give the road its own identity, high quality trees, and the introduction of new parking bays.
Once the scheme is complete, pedestrian access and safety will also be enhanced as the wider tree- lined pavements with formalised crossing points and 20mph zone physical speed reduction features will help to reduce the speed of vehicles.
Working under the supervision of Urban Vision’s highway design engineers, the principal contractor -Balfour Beatty - has a proposed completion date of early summer 2015.
