Transport for Greater Manchester and Manchester City Council have been named winners of a new award presented by Brake, in collaboration with Road Safety GB.
Brake’s inaugural Vision Zero Leaders Awards recognise achievement in three categories: Local Roads Innovation, Community Campaign Achievement, and Youth Leadership. Brake says the new awards ‘celebrate the hidden champions leading the way to safe and healthy roads and a world with zero road deaths and serious injuries’.
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and Manchester City Council won the Local Roads Innovation Award for a CYCLOPS (cycle optimised protected signals) junction in Hulme. This category was presented in partnership with Road Safety GB who helped judge the entries and select the winner.
The innovative junction forms part of Greater Manchester’s Bee Network and places the cycle route on the outside of the pedestrian crossings, fully segregating cyclists and improving safety for all users.
