We designed the scheme to provide an improved route between Knutsford Road and Wilderspool Causeway with improved connections into nearby parks and residential areas. The project will provide a surface that is more weather resistant and harder wearing, benefiting people walking, cycling, using mobility scooters and wheelchairs. It will also aid people to travel sustainably, healthily and safely. Part of the scheme will also provide a new Toucan crossing at Knutsford road near the Swing bridge, allowing for better pedestrian, disabled and cycle access to Clearwater Quays and beyond.
The works associated with the scheme are unlikely to impact on any residents who back onto the path. All of the improvements will be along the line of the existing route. We have had permission from Peel Ports Ltd to carry out the works where it occurs on their land.
TPT temporary diversion
During the construction period, this section of the TPT will be closed for public safety. A diversion route has been agreed with the TPT office and is shown on the plan below.
Anyone travelling westbound from Thelwall New Road should pick up the diversion route on Greenbank Road.
