Chapelford distributor road. Single lane dual carriageway with cycle lanes.

Cycleway. 3.5m wide, smooth tarmac and lit. Access control is a single bollard. Much more civilised than #83626

Birchwood to Sankey Way cycle route crosses the busy A574 Cromwell Avenue at an unprotected crossing.

A short, narrow, green mandatory cycle lane on a roundabout on the A574 Cromwell Avenue

Fences protect the side of the greenway where it crosses a ditch. They should really be set back 0.5m to maintain the full effective width.

Birchwood to Sankey Way: 3m wide unlit greenway follows a winding route through Sankey Valley Park.
