Is there anything in the pipeline for better pedestrian connectivity with the city centre?

At the moment it seems there are only two options; the canal which is currently very unpleasant in the dark or I regularly see people dicing with death crossing the big roundabout at the top of the slip roads to Manc Way (somebody is going to get killed doing that at some point).

A pedestrian bridge between Slate Wharf and Ellesmere/Balmforth Street would be amazing if it could be designed in a way as to not end up looking like some kind of cage fight venue.

Not an architect or engineer though so no idea if there would be room for this.

To be fair, people are meant to use the pedestrian crossings to the middle of Chester rd and walk that way.

But I completely agree there should be investment for a walkway here.

As SocialAlcoholic says, there's a massive crossing on Chester Rd... Having lived on Ellesmere St, the proper pedestrian route over the Mancunian way roundabout is a fairly direct route into the city centre and there are traffic light controlled pedestrian crossings on each junction, where you don't even have to wait too long at all for a green man... I cant see how crossing at the slip-roads saves any time/distance as you would end up going up Deansgate anyway. Anyone crossing at the slip-roads is a nominee for a Darwin award...

Update: Shepherd Gilmour building as of yesterday evening, a third knocked down. Reckon the building will be gone by the end of the week. Second demolition of adjacent building looks likely for the following week, both relatively small buildings, so site clearance shouldn't take long. Will really open up that part of Ellesmere Road, before construction begins.

Pretty much everything between the church and the antiques place at the other end of Ellesmere St is being replaces by 'something Gardens'

There are a number of threads on this little stretch, I think one of them has a good round-up (by AJD1984 I think) of all the developments

I'm not sure as to whether I'm a fan of this scheme tbh.

I love the street wall on the east side, the massing is perfect for such an area to build upon, the brick appears to ne of quality, and I understand that the blank wall/s to the north are there for potential future developments; which ino is the way it should be.

However I'm not a fan of the fairly black wall facing the corner above the old building, it needs breaking up, windows could help or even a green wall may look appropriate. I'm also not a fan of the east side, the open spaces seem a bit to messy and mish mash. What's wrong with a continuous street wall there, the development already has an inner courtyard, if they want more open space why not put it on the roof for reseidents? There doesn't appear to be any rooftop penthouses preventing this.

All in all, if this development had a few tweaks, it would be fantastic. Let's hope I'm wrong with the finished product!
