Thursday 9 January
The first phase of the scheme is located between Chester Road roundabout and Stretford Road.
From Monday 13 January the junction of Royce Road and Chorlton Road will be controlled by temporary traffic lights for up to six weeks. These signals will be manually controlled by engineers during peak hours (7am-10am and 3.30pm-6pm).
Each of the four arms of the junction will have a single lane remaining open at all times. This is to enable construction of the new cycling and pedestrian-friendly junction.
- From 13 January until 23 February
- Manchester city centre
Advice for drivers
On Monday 13 January, between 4.30pm and 7pm, there were delays of 10 minutes on Chorlton Road (southbound) between Mancunian Way and Royce Road.
Re-time your journey or follow the below diversion routes which had a good traffic flow to improve your journey.
- Use A56 Chester Road and A5014 Chester Road towards Stretford Road for journeys travelling to Trafford Bar, Firswood and Moss Side.
During the peak periods, engineers will manually operate the temporary traffic signals to balance the traffic queues and allow each arm of the junction to move.
For local and shorter trips walking and cycling are recommeneded, especially on Stretford Road where there is a dedicated cycle lane towards Manchester and Stretford. Get on your bikes and ride!
