Greater Manchester Bee Network - improving the local transport system

Future plans for the Bee Network in Rochdale

We're currently developing a project to continue the Castleton scheme from the Royal Toby Hotel on Manchester Road.

Subject to approval, the project will connect the Greater Manchester Bee Network to Rochdale town centre and will include additional cycle lane connections and upgrades to major road junctions.

This proposed route will make use of the old Manchester Road sections of the highway that run parallel to the A58 duel carriageway of Manchester Road.

Upgrades to these routes will also include improvements to street lighting, footpaths, street signs, landscaping and the potential for electric vehicle charging points.
