More than one million cycle journeys have been made on the Oxford Road and Wilmslow Road Cycleway in Manchester since recording began in September last year, states Transport for Greater Manchester.
The milestone was reached this week, just over one month after the digital cycle counters outside Manchester Royal Infirmary on Oxford Road recorded 5,000 two-way cycle journeys on a single day for the first time.
The cycleways from Fallowfield to Oxford Street in Manchester city centre are physically separated from the main carriageway by kerbing.
Greater Manchester Cycling and Walking Commissioner, Chris Boardman, said: “I’m not surprised that the Wilmslow Road and Oxford Road cycleway has been a huge success.
“It proves that, if you build high-quality cycle lanes that are separated from other traffic, people will use them.
