Current issues affecting travel to our hospitals - Children's Hospital, Eye Hospital, MRI and St Mary's

To coincide with the University's need to temporarily close Oxford Road as part of its campus investment, Transport for Greater Manchester will also start the next phase of its bus priority work in the area.

This will include installing the first section of segregated 'Dutch style' cycle lanes between Hathersage Road and Denmark Road. This work will tie in with the already constructed bus stop cycle bypass and the new pedestrian and cycle facilities in front of Whitworth Park. During the work only outbound vehicular traffic flows will be possible past the work site, starting from 23 May for two weeks.

From Monday 6th June, the section of Oxford Road between Hathersage Road and Denmark Road will be closed to all traffic for three days.

From Thursday 9th June, drivers heading into the city on Oxford Road will be unable to travel past Hathersage Road between 6am and 9pm, 7 days a week, and will need to turn right on to Hathersage Road before continuing their journey along Upper Brook Street.

Local access to Oxford Road will be maintained from adjoining roads and signage is in place to help everyone navigate the area.

Alternative routes to avoid Oxford Road in this area are available along Upper Brook Street and Hathersage Road - local access will be maintained from adjoining routes. Diversions will be clearly signposted for drivers as part of the traffic management for TfGM and the University's work. Cyclists and pedestrians will also be signposted around the roadworks.

The following bus services will be running on diversion routes because of the works:

15, 18, 38, 41, 42, 42A, 43, 44, 53, 111, 142, 143, 147, 191, 197, X41, X57 and night services 42, 43, 142 and 143.

For passengers using these services, information will be posted at affected bus stops. More detailed information about the bus diversions is available on the TfGM website.

  • Grafton Street car park is currently undergoing major refurbishment and expansion. Spaces are still available in this car park but are limited. An alternative multi-story car park is available at the Upper Brook Street/Hathersage Road junction of our site but we would advise using public transport if at all possible.

If possible we would strongly recommend using public transport to get here. Our hospitals are in dense urban locations where roads are often busy and parking is often oversubscribed. All our hospitals are served by many bus routes and other community transport services which are detailed in the pages linked above.

For information about any public transport services please contact Transport for Greater Manchester on 0871 200 2233. Their lines are open between 7.00am and 8.00pm on Monday to Friday, and from 8.00 am to 8.00 am on weekends and bank holidays.
