Drivers in Salford were fined nearly £1 million from six bus lanes last year, figures show. Data from a freedom of information request (FOI) showed that more than 25,000 fines were issued from the six lanes, with Salford council raking in a total of £960,000 between April 2023 and April 2024.

The data was shared by Personal Injury Claims UK. READ MORE: Their city is growing, but they say their community is being chipped away Penalty Charge Notices (PCN) for drivers caught out using bus lanes in Salford is £60, but this is halved if paid within 14 days.

The FOI data showed that 6,954 drivers failed to settle the matter promptly, and faced paying the higher amount. The majority of the fines issued were at the Chapel Street contra-flow bus lane, north-east of Victoria Bridge Street.

This bus lane started as an experimental bus lane in 2020 and was eventually made permanent, despite concerns from Network Rail at the time about needing full access along Chapel Street at all times.
