Fantastic new Sparrow Crossing (walking and cycling) in Stockport. Keeps pedestrians and cycles separate, and provides a very safe place to cross the road! Also a lovely refurbished alley.

New link to residential streets from the new path

Bollards don't need to be ugly. These bollards are disguised as novelty pencils outside Ludworth Primary School.

Cycle crossings alongside the new A555 bypass. Not yet complete in this picture.
