Alliance MBS building work update

(11 February 2016)

Booth Street West car park

As part of the Alliance MBS building work, there have been changes to pedestrian access between Alliance MBS West and the Booth Street West car park.

The access routes are as follows.

  • To access Alliance MBS West from the car park, turn left and walk around the hotel site via Higher Cambridge Street
  • To access Alliance MBS from the rest of the campus, walk via Oxford Road and along Booth Street West.
  • There will still be access from the car park to the rest of the campus.

A map explaining this in more detail is available here

In response to feedback, work is being done to improve drainage on Higher Cambridge Street, a new light is being installed, and signage is being improved.

Relocation of Starbucks and Blackwell’s Bookshop

Blackwell’s Bookshop and Starbucks will continue to be open throughout the Alliance Manchester Business School refurbishment, and will be relocated to temporary retail accommodation.

This will be in the area between the Arthur Lewis Building and the Humanities Bridgeford Street Building. Construction work and the temporary retail units will be on the grassed area to the left hand side when looking towards the Arthur Lewis Building entrance.

There will be minimum interruption to the service provided by Blackwell’s and Starbucks.
