To continue riding on the A56 covid-19 pop-up cycleway from here you need to head right (where it is blocked by the two blue arrows) across the path of motor traffic heading straight on up Barton Road. An accident waiting to happen.

URmston Manchester m41 . A well used path especially during the Covic19 emergency and after recent improvements to paths and removal of hard barriers

Urmston Davyhulme m41. Approach to roundabout has a cycle lane in a completely useless place. 95% of cycle lanes in Trafford are used for car parking

Urmston Manchester M41 .The end of the cycleway is abrupt throwing cyclists into path of following vehicles and cyclists who stay on road. An extended kerb would protect and/or a soft bollard or wand to warn would help.

Wharfeside Trafford Manchester . New Tram stop has cycle parking for 10 bikes at Wharfesdie Tram stop on the Metrolink line between Dumplington (Trafford Centre ) and Manchester

Unfortunately a lot of engineering would be required to fix this flooding. The road isn't normally like this but it should remain usable 24/7 to be a viable route.

This track is badly flooded and covered with tree roots. Not recommended for cycling.

Motoring filter that should be modified to allow easy passage of bicycles.

Short pedestrian area that could use a more appropriate design to allow cycling.

A serious lack of attention from the council has resulted in this useful path becoming hugely overgrown. It is almost at the point of being impassible.

Manchester Urmston. Trafford General Hospital . This cycle parking near the entrance is hidden and not signosted. Not easy to notice (needs signs) . The nearby covered cycle parking is often full.

You cannot expect people to be "more active" to improve their health when the very tracks you want them to use are in this condition. This entire route needs a sealed surface and proper drainage.

This short alley between two streets could easily be upgraded to provide a viable cycling link. It is slightly on the narrow side but isn't long enough for anyone to get any kind of speed up.
