Updated Signs - Irwell River Park Opening Hours

Two years after Salford Council first extended the opening hours of the Irwell River Path the signs have finally been updated. It is now only a couple of weeks till the summer hours anyway, so too late to make a difference this year.

However, the update it looks a bit unofficial, as someone has just put gaffer tape over the incorrect parts of the sign. And before you ask, no it wasn't me, though I had given it some thought...

It is about time Salford Council started promoting this path properly along with the rest of the Irwell River Park. This route isn't even on the TfGM cycle maps and isn't featured on any of the cycling journey planners.

This is one of the best little paths in Greater Manchester and this morning it was wonderful in the sunshine. Even better was the sound and sight of two lapwings over Ordsall, though they had gone by the time I got my camera out.

  1. It isn't really a park though. It's a riverside path. I always thought the name was unhelpful.

    But it is weird how the councils initially seemed very keen with announcements and the fancy website and now they don't mention it anywhere, and the website is defunct. It's on the sustrans online maps as a "proposed" route.
