Advice for drivers

Please stay at home unless making an essential journey.

Re-time your journey to avoid the lengthy delays. The quickest times towards Manchester so far this week have been before 8am and after 9am. This saved 10 minutes sat in traffic.

During the evening peak this week, the quickest journey times Eastbound have been before 5pm and after 6pm. This saved 10 minutes sat in traffic.

Re-timing your journey could save you 20 minutes a day behind the wheel.

On the M60, Junction 24 is busier than usual. It may be quicker to leave via an alternative junction to reduce your journey time. Junction 27 (Stockport) and Junction 23 (Ashton-Under-Lyne) are options. Two Metrolink Park and Ride sites are available close to Junction 23.

If re-routing onto A635 Ashton Old Road the best time to travel eastbound in the evening peak have been between 4pm and 6pm.

Local trip times in the Gorton and Reddish areas are expected to increase. Walking and cycling may well be quicker and healthier.

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.


The 201, 204, 205, 206 bus services are still operating during the works but may be subject to delays. It may be quicker to take frequent bus services on parallel routes such as the 219 service on Ashton Old Road and the 192 service on Stockport Road.

The 150 service will only operate between Gorton and the Trafford Centre during these works.


All Metrolink lines will run a 12 minute frequency until further notice.

Avoid the traffic & get in and out of the city quicker via tram.

Can't travel the whole way by Metrolink? Many stops have free Park and Ride sites and cycling storage facilities.

If travelling from east Manchester there are two Park and Ride sites:

  • Ashton Moss with 200 spaces (Alexandria Drive, Ashton, OL6 7UB) – Journey time 30 minutes.
  • Ashton West with 194 spaces (Lord Sheldon Way, Ashton, OL7 0PG) - Journey time 30 minutes.

Both of these sites are only 3 minutes drive from M60 Junction 23. Drive, park up for free, jump on a tram.


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. Changes to train services will be shown on this page.

There is capacity off-peak Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 4pm and after 6.30pm. It’s cheaper during these hours too.

There are even Park and Ride facilities at the following locations:

  • Guide Bridge 115 Spaces (Guide Lane, Audenshaw, M34 5BR)
  • Broadbottom 100 Spaces (Market Street Broadbottom SK14 6AX)
  • Bredbury 100 Spaces (Stockport Road, WestBredbury, SK6 2AA)

Cycling and Walking

During the works local and shorter trips may be quicker by walking/cycling.

This is especially true in the case of Gorton and Reddish areas. Leave the car at home and enjoy a brisk walk!

The Fallowfield Loop is now closed at this location. A short local diversion is in place implemented with extra directional signage and CCTV cameras.

A new bridge will be installed as part of these works later in the year reconnecting the original Fallowfield Loop.

Walking and cycling are a great way to improve physical and mental health.
