Last update: 02/06/2004 11:26:46


This project addressed personal security issues across a 'whole journey', from Manchester Victoria to Clitheroe, with a range of cross modal links. The work included identifying the scope for physical and practical improvements to help transport passengers & pedestrians feel more secure when using the route, their cost and grant aid sources.

The objective of the project was to deliver a secure transport pilot route including railway lines, bus stops, taxi ranks, secure car parks and secure bicycle parking facilities on the route and termini of the route.


The project identified the scope for physical and practical improvements to help people feel secure when using this route, their cost and possible grant aid sources and to consider the practicality of pursuing this approach elsewhere, measure the results of a comprehensive crime reduction strategy along the pilot route working on the premise that the route is 'only as safe as its weakest point', and tested the feasibility of forming robust crime reduction partnerships that cross local authority, agency and disciplinary boundaries. The first stage concluded with the publication of the report in March 2001.

The project concluded the first stage with a report Secure Transport Route - Manchester Victoria to Clitheroe Pilot. This report identifies good practice, analyses the route and develops and action plan for the area. It also contains four draft guidelines.
