More than one million cycle journeys have been made on the segregated Oxford Road and Wilmslow Road Cycleway in Greater Manchester since monitoring began with automatic cycle counters in September 2016, reports Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM).

The milestone was reached last week, a month after the digital ‘totem pole’ cycle counters outside Manchester Royal Infirmary on Oxford Road recorded 5,000 two-way cycle journeys on a single day for the first time.
