Advice for drivers

Re-timing your journey before 8am could save you five 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

Cycling 🚴 and Walking 🚶

In order to protect people, ease pressure on our public transport system and keep traffic moving, we’re encouraging everyone to walk and cycle where possible - especially for shorter trips. With parking limited in the Longsight area this is a great opportunity to stretch those legs.

We’ve got loads of handy tips and advice available to help you give it a go

Alternative travel


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.


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.
