From: Trafford Cycle Forum 15/11/2016 Major Schemes Update
7. Ashton-on-Mersey to Urmston – improved cycle link.
The proposal is to improve an existing route. Third party land agreement required which is proving problematical. The route passes over 2 separate areas of land owned by 2 parties. Works on sections of land controlled by Trafford are anticipated to start on site early in the New Year.
Part of the route is the "Urmston 53" footpath: http://www.rowmaps.com/tweakmap.php?lat=53.441&lon=-2.3454&width=600&height=800&zoom=16
