Update on Oxford Road and surrounding areas

(15 November 2016)

From Sunday, 20 November a number of permanent changes to Oxford Street will come into effect. The changes are to allow a bus, cycle and pedestrian priority zone between Whitworth Street and Portland Street and will include making part of the road open to two-way traffic. For many years, this section of Oxford Street has been one-way only to all traffic heading towards the city. 

Detailed information on the changes will be published later this week, including updated online maps to show what’s different. 

Closer to home, Oxford Road will be closed to all traffic between Brunswick Street up to and including the junction of Booth Street East and West, from Saturday 26 November, while the next phase of resurfacing work is carried out. 

To help drivers get around the work, Manchester City Council will be installing on-highway diversion signs on surrounding routes.
