Oxford Road corridor and Brook Street closures in January

(20 December 2016)

From Wednesday, 4 January through to Sunday, 8 January, inclusive, further resurfacing of the Oxford Road corridor will require it to be closed from the junction of Booth Street up to just south of the Charles Street junction. 

This closure will ensure that work can be carried out safely and efficiently. This will mostly affect local traffic due to the operational bus gate now in place between Hathersage Road and Denmark Road. While east to west crossings of the corridor will still be possible along Booth Street, there will likely be a knock-on effect on surrounding roads. 

Following completion of the resurfacing work, Bruntwood’s redevelopment of the former BBC site, or Circle Square as it’s now known, will require the full closure of Brook Street – between Upper Brook Street and Princess Street – in order to carry out essential utility connections. This closure will come into effect from Monday 9 January through to Sunday 12 February, inclusive. 

Manchester City Council’s highway team will be signposting a diversion route for drivers but expect the area to busier than usual for much of the four weeks.
