I know are councillors are hard working & are trying to listen to local residents concerns about illegal motorcyclists on but don't let the illegal actions of a few be a burden to those who wish you use the route legitimately There is a good compromise to be had

These promotional images are always taken on Beech Road, Chorlton. Why never the A6 through Levy, or the Fallowfield Loop by a barrier?

Literally the Levy anti-Bee Network NIMBYs. Almost exactly word for word.

And unfortunately, it seems MCC Highways are not so quick to act to remove barriers when councillors and community are behind removing them, as they are to add barriers when community are supposedly behind adding them!

- we have a (I would suggest far bigger) problem with motorbikes around Turn Moss but our community group are against these types of barriers as a solution due to impact on everyday use of the space. β€˜Why penalise the many for the actions of tiny few’

Bus riders: "Help the three buses I take to work are perpetually stuck in traffic and if i'm late again I will lose my job." This asshole: "But have you considered I'm a huge, spoiled adult baby?"

It doesn't matter what was installed or when it was installed. The law is clear when something stops a disabled person gaining access. Worse for a local authority which is obliged to be proactive. It would be good for the council to do its job, but can help.

While they're at it, can they replace it with one as wide as the old railway bridge that was removed? At least 6 metres wide please.

Tragic news 😒. This is why Low Traffic Neighbourhoods & road segregation need to be the norm in GM. Govt are even directing us now. Local politicians who refuse to acknowledge this need to wake up. The deaths of young people in this way can be prevented.

It also doesn't matter if something is an old installation. Discrimination is discrimination and the Council has its Public Sector Equality Duty which means proactively dealing with barriers (physical or otherwise). The council is currently at risk here

Can even get a train and then go camping or whatever, I hear the trains are still pretty quiet.

Happy to. Can you confirm the installation of these barriers will be postponed until all stakeholders are consulted?

We're not even lobbying for cycling here, really. I'm privileged that these barriers don't really affect me, other than a minor annoyance. But I am arguing for those who are less able who are blocked from this route entirely and who must use main roads or get a car/bus/taxi...

Accessibility shouldn't be temporary.

Not if it designs out legitimate users.

Sounds good to me although I'm not sure what it would gain. There's no barrier in existence that can stop all types of offroad motorbikes while allowing all types of non-standard cycles and legitimate users. The access should be accessible and motorbikes enforced by police.

Hello Julie, worth a read of this from on access control barriers. Lots of focus, quite rightly, on inclusive cycling at the moment. It is featured strongly in new national standards.

I don't really understand why it was only suitable for this entrance to be accessible while it was a diversion. The bridge may be installed but what about disabled people who want to join/leave the Floop here, and not go over the bridge?

It's not that simple, it's now classed as a new installation and so must comply with the Equality Act, which A Frames and Chicanes don't, especially at the bottom of a steep incline. There is grounds for litigation each and every time a disabled user is disadvantaged by it.
