There are now more than 5,000 people a day riding on the new protected cycleway along Oxford Road and Wilmslow Road in Manchester.
Cycle counters have recorded more than 5,000 cyclists a day on twelve occasions since the highpoint-to-date was reached on 25th September.
The most cyclists counted in one day has been 5,803, which was reached on Tuesday 3rd October.
The counters, which are the first of their kind in Greater Manchester, were unveiled on both sides of Oxford Road, close to the old St Mary’s Hospital, as part of Transport for Greater Manchester’s Cycle City programme. They allow people to see the number of bikes that have passed the counter that day along with an annual cumulative count. Sensors embedded in the cycle track and along the main carriageway detect passing bikes which are then added to the count.
The data from the digital display counters on Oxford Road can be checked on the Eco Counters website.
