CityLink Walking Route to Link Holt Town to Etihad Campus

CityLink Walking Route to Link Holt Town to Etihad Campus
03 July 2024

A new walking route that links Holt Town to the Etihad Campus has launched.

The new route will allow people to easily travel on foot between the Holt Town tram stop and Etihad Campus, which is home to Co-op Live and the Etihad Stadium.

Delivered in partnership with Manchester City Football Club and Manchester City Council, it’s hoped that CityLink’s colour-changing interactive pathway will attract tourists, as well as provide a safe and green option to travel between the destinations.

Co-op Live has signed The Climate Pledge, committing to be net-zero carbon by 2040, and encouraging as many fans as possible to walk to the venue.

A Climate Pledge Arch will tally the number of fans who walk to and from the venue, in turn calculating the amount of carbon avoided thanks to people making the journey on foot. The route is covered by CCTV and on event days stewards will help to ensure people’s safety.

Sally Fouts, Global Lead for The Climate Pledge, said: "It's great to see Co-op Live prioritise sustainability and we're proud The Climate Pledge can help get more fans to the campus while reducing their carbon footprint. We’re focused on bringing industries together and finding solutions to get to net-zero carbon faster. Around the world, sustainability can and should be at the heart of the fan experience."
