Broadway Green works
The final stage of work on a major new link road leading to the £100m regeneration scheme at Broadway Green has now started. Traffic management is deployed and will be place for the remainder of the works.
The work will create a new road linking Foxdenton Lane to Broadway and a new signalised junction.
Lane closures will be in place on the northbound side (towards Chadderton), between Newman RC College and the junction of Hunt Lane until late October 2020.
- Work is underway and will continue until October 2020

Advice for drivers
When the works begin in January, drivers are encouraged to re-time their journeys in order to avoid the most congested periods.
Travelling before 7am, between 10am and 3pm, and after 7pm are advised.
Drivers heading to Oldham or Manchester City Centre could use the A62 Oldham Road as an alternative route during the works and busy periods.
Travelling by public transport could also improve your journey times and be cheaper.
Once the works have begun, further data will be provided on this page giving the best times to travel, alternative routes and more information regarding other transport options available to you.
Avoid the traffic, travel around quicker by tram!

Greater Manchester is well served by rail, so why not beat the traffic and take the train!
Avoid the traffic and delays and hop on the train to get you to and from Manchester. Fast and frequent services operate seven days a week!
Moston, Mills Hill, Castleton and Rochdale all have regular services.
There is capacity on off-peak services Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm, and after 6.30pm. It’s cheaper during these hours too!
The 181 and 182 bus services will operate during the works, however they may be subject to delays, especially during busy periods. Other local services may also be affected by these works.
It may be quicker to take a bus on other roads with regular services to and from the city centre. Several high frequency services go via A62 Oldham Road to Manchester, Oldham and beyond!
Check with your local bus operator for live service information.
During the works local and shorter trips in the Foxdenton, Butler Green and Chadderton areas may be quicker (and healthier) by walking.
Play your part in reducing congestion and improving the air we breathe by taking a brisk stroll whether that’s to work, taking the kids to school or to the match!
