Important Travel Information - Oxford Road Closure

bridgeOxford Road will be closed to through traffic between Booth Street East and Hathersage Road from the early hours of Monday 10 August for four weeks until Sunday 6 September.

Road users are advised to expect some delays and allow longer for their journeys. Pedestrian access will be maintained and access to the campus will still be available to vehicles on University business or with other local businesses. Diversion routes for cyclists will be clearly signposted.

There will be a bus route and traffic diversion in place at Hathersage Road along Upper Brook Street and Booth Street East. This will be used by bus services 18, 38, 41, 42, 43, 44, 142, 143, 145, 157, X41, X57, 141, 147, 191, 197.

Bus services 15, 53 and 111 will run along Lloyd Street North, Higher Cambridge Street and Booth Street West. The 53 service only will run along Higher Cambridge Street, Lloyd Street North and Moss Lane East.

The Oxford Road Link bus 147 and First bus 18 will be coming through the hospital as normal. They will use Dover Street to get back onto Oxford Road and enter the hospital via Nelson Street as usual.

They will exit the site onto Hathersage Road turning left onto Upper Brook St and straight down Upper Brook Street as far as Grosvenor Street rejoining the route at All Saints. There will be no service down Grafton Street.

Diversions will be clearly signposted and information will be posted at affected bus stops.

Road works continue on Oxford Road between Moss Lane East and Hathersage Road meaning some localised lane narrowing and temporary closures.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) will be monitoring the road network in real-time and adjusting traffic signals to reduce any congestion.

All work has been scheduled during the quieter summer period to minimise the impact on drivers, cyclists and pedestrians and temporary diversions will be clearly signposted so that users will be aware of any alternative routes.
