End of the Fallowfield Loop Cycleway
End of the Fallowfield Loop Cycleway
The disused Fallowfield Loop railway line and a short section of the South District Line west of St Werburgh's Road (seen here) were converted into a cycle path in the 1990. This was the final section linking to the end of Sidbury Road. By summer 2009 work was well under way to re-open the line from Old Trafford to Chorlton Junction as an extension to the Metrolink tram network. The cranes visible in the photo were being used by a piling contractor. The line re-opened on the 7th July 2011. The cycle path has been realigned to cross the track via a level crossing and run along the north side as far as the new St Werburgh's Road stop.
