Oxford Road Cycleway wins award for Excellence in Cycling and Walking

​The Oxford Road Cycleway has been recognised for a prestigious award at the recent 18th Annual National Transport Awards.

Winning the Excellence in Cycling and Walking accolade, the scheme was led by Oxford Road Corridor partners, Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester City Council. 

Launched in September 2017, the ‘Dutch-style’ cycle lanes were one of the most ambitious highway projects Manchester city centre has ever seen. As a result of this success, Manchester plans to deliver the largest joined-up system of walking and cycling routes in the UK over the next five years. 

Transport for Greater Manchester also scooped the award for City-Region Transport Authority of the Year, reflecting on a number of successful initiatives for the city such as Metrolink’s Second City Crossing completion.
