UPDATE3 EXPRESS YOUR VIEWS AT www.tfgm.com/buspriority/Pages/Oxford-Road-corridor.aspx The image shows that cyclists approaching from Grosvenor Street and some other directions do not have sight of the red/green status on the push button control.

UPDATE2: If anyone feels inclined to post details (like me) of anything on bus priority please TAG with buspriority - you don't need a photo just mark where it is on the map. If you want to let us know who you are contact@gmcc.org.uk subject buspriority or @GMcyclecampaign #buspriority also if you want to @officialTfGM

UPDATE: The Greater Manchester Bus Priority Package Consultation has been
launched. The main objective of the scheme is to “enable more people to
enjoy faster, more punctual and more reliable bus services from a wider
area across Greater Manchester to and from Manchester and through the
heart of the city centre” but also to “improve local links for
pedestrian and cyclists.” Full details at: www.tfgm.com/buspriority


The consultation is in two stages:

Stage 1: Roads parallel to Oxford Road/Wilmslow Road
From 3 Sept – 3 Oct 2012 (only one month window!)

Stage 2: Oxford Road
Consultation in 2013 (date to be announced)

At this Stage 1 you may wish to give a personal opinion online or at
a series of public events in the next four weeks. Log on: www.tfgm.com/buspriority
The extension of 20 mph limits is welcomed but these
should cover all residential streets in the area – and throughout the
city/conurbation. 20’s Plenty Where People Live.


ORIGINAL REPORT:
Upper Brook Street Toucan on Route to Manchester University Campus. The central reservation is too small for pedestrians AND cyclists. Although the image does not show any users at other occasions there is cyclist/pedestrian conflict because of the narrowness of the crossing particularly at the central refuge. The offset crossing presents an obstruction. It is MUCH BETTER than old facility though (see Google image below) where crossing was NOT allowed forcing people to cross over 2 or 3 busy roads. The crossing is in the area covered by a bus priority package www.tfgm.com/buspriority/routes/Pages/oxford-road.aspx . May be the crossing will be improved under that scheme. The lower image shows land that appears to be between uses may be part of that can be used to straighten the cycle path. Already the railings have been removed (see google image for before status)
