Oxford Road closure

(30 July 2015)

Oxford Road will be closed from Monday, 10 August to Sunday, 6 September between the junctions of Oxford Road with Hathersage Road and Booth Street West/East. Access will still be available for vehicles on University business or with other local businesses.

Due to the redevelopment of Manchester Business School there will be no pedestrian access under the bridge for the four week period of the road closure, and pedestrian access around the area of the demolition zone will be restricted. Alternative pedestrian routes will be signposted at appropriate points on Oxford Road.

As a result of the work on the Precinct Centre, SPAR has now closed permanently. Blackwell’s remains open, though it will be closed briefly between Friday, 15September and Monday, 17 September.

Cycle access is only restricted to the area of the demolition zone around and under the bridge, and there will be no cycle access under the bridge for the four week period of the road closure. Alternative cycle routes will be signposted at appropriate points on Oxford Road.

Vehicular traffic and bus route diversions will be in place; the main diversionary route uses Hathersage Road, Upper Brook Street and Booth Street East – this will be used by the following bus services: 18, 38, 41, 42, 43, 44, 142, 143, 145, 157, X41, X57, 141, 147, 191 and 197

An alternative diversion will run along Moss Lane East, Lloyd Street North, Higher Cambridge Street and Booth Street West – this will be used by the following bus services: 15, 53 and 111
