Getting Greater Manchester moving

Successful cities have something in common: a happy, healthy population that makes short trips on foot or by bike. When Chris Boardman MBE was made Greater Manchester’s first Cycling and Walking Commissioner, he made this his priority: to double and then double again our region’s cycling rates and make walking the natural choice for as many short trips as possible. Made to Move is Chris Boardman’s report to the Mayor, Andy Burnham, setting out exactly how he intends to achieve this and calls for £1.5 billion investment over a decade to make it possible.

We worked closely with Chris and his team to write, edit and design the report. We also commissioned photographer Jonathan Keenan to capture perfect shots that reflect the report’s ambitions and aspirations.
