June 2015

Closure of Oxford Road and pedestrian bridge

(29 May 2015)

Oxford Road will be closed to through traffic from Monday, 8 June until Monday, 15 June, while essential work is carried out to divert services which currently run across the Precinct Centre bridge (near Blackwells).

The bridge will not be accessible from Wednesday, 3 June, until it is demolished in the summer. 

There will be a 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.

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

Pedestrian access will be maintained on Oxford Road and vehicles will still be able to access the campus.

This bridge will be demolished in the summer as part of the redevelopment of Manchester Business School. This will involve a second road closure scheduled to take place over a four-week period from from 10 August to 6 September 2015.

Further updates will be provided as work progresses. For further information please contact James Boland via email or on 0161 306 5571.
