Following morning snow in Manchester last Friday, a number of people complained about significant flooding on the new Wilmslow Road Cycleway. In response, Manchester City Council have said that they will investigate any issues brought to their attention.
One local cyclist tweeted a photo of the flooding.

In response, Councillor Chris Paul, Labour member for Withington, then highlighted another problem.

Paul has since tweeted to say he thought the cause of the flooding may have been attended to and that there were also signs of repair to the dip.
Councillor Kate Chappell, Manchester City Council's executive member for the environment, told road.cc:
"Work continues to be undertaken to transform facilities for cyclists along the Wilmslow Road corridor, making it easier for people of all ages to get about and access jobs, services and businesses by bike.
"We will be completing a detailed evaluation of the construction and will fully investigate any issues brought to our attention by cyclists and other road users, in partnership with our contractor."
As the Wilmslow Road Cycleway nears completion, several junctions are also to be reviewed. Following a collision between a cyclist and a turning van last month, campaigners suggested that a redesign was needed as the new road layout is potentially confusing.
