FoWS respond to TfGM’s 2040 strategy consultation

October 8, 2016

Transport for Greater Manchester have recently run a consultation period on their “2040 vision” – the long-term plan for public transport in the Manchester region.

The FOWS Response to TfGM 2040 Strategy Consultation breaks down our hopes for improvements into achievable near, mid, and long-term goals that will deliver a step change to public transport in our busy and rapidly growing district.

Ultimately we want to see Walkden operating as a transport hub for north-west Salford with light-rail, bus, tram, and cycle facilities incorporated in an integrated exchange. Our proposal is perhaps more ambitious than TfGM’s but we feel that considering the ever-increasing housing and associated congestion in the area an integrated hub is not only justified but essential.
