Advice for drivers

Please stay at home unless making an essential journey.

A lane closure is now in place until early April between Mitre Road and St John's Road (towards Manchester). This has reduced the road capacity and increased journey times, especially during peak periods. The right hand turn towards Kirkmanshulme Lane will remain open to traffic.

Re-timing your journey before 8am could save you 10 minutes behind the wheel.

Re-routing via A34 Birchfields Road so far has proved to be a quicker alternative during these works. This route is being monitored by our 24/7 control centre.

With bus lanes assisting a fast and frequent 192 bus service along the A6, the bus is a quick, regular (at least every five minutes in peak times) and cheap alternative.

Alternative travel

Please stay at home. Public Transport should only be used for essential journeys.

For those making essential journeys, follow government guidance and wash hands before and after travelling, catch coughs and sneezes using a tissue and use contactless payments where possible.

Cycling and Walking

Staying active through walking and cycling is a good way to remain physically and mentally healthy.

During these works short local trips may be quicker on foot or on your bike. With parking limited in the Longsight area this is a great opportunity to stretch those legs.

Don’t forget if you're cycling along the A6 towards Manchester there are secure cycle hubs where you can leave your bike safely.

Alternative travel

Rail

Avoid the traffic and delays and hop on the train to get you to and from Manchester.

There are fast, frequent and cheap services available seven days a week from Levenshulme, Heaton Chapel and Stockport. Journeys from the Stockport area only take 10 minutes to get into the city centre.

Bus

The world famous 192 service connects Manchester to several areas south of the city centre and is a cost effective and quick way of avoiding the disruption. Services run every couple of minutes.

If you're travelling from the Hazel Grove area, there is even a Park and Ride site you can leave the car at for free.

Don’t forget that if you travel from the Longsight or Rusholme areas there is also a fast and frequent 50 service that operates along the A34 Birchfields Road – only a short stroll from the roadworks.
