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 & shorter trip in the Gorton and Reddish areas should be made by cycling 🚴 and walking 🚶 to save time behind the wheel.
Cycling 🚴 and Walking 🚶
🚴 🚶 🐎 Update - The new bridge reconnecting the Fallowfield Loop has reopened.
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. This is especially true in the Gorton and Reddish areas. Leave the car at home and enjoy a brisk walk!
Its safe to use public transport but please consider active travel options such as cycling and walking.
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.
All Metrolink lines will run at a 10-minute frequency until further notice.
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 – Journey time 30 minutes.
- Ashton West with 194 spaces - Journey time 30 minutes.
Both of these sites are only three minutes drive from M60 Junction 23. Drive, park up for free, jump on a tram.
