Advice for drivers 🚗

🚧 Due to a burst water main Hyde Road is currently closed between Reddish Bridge and Wellington Street. There is no timescale when the road will re-open.

🔴 Local diversions are in place, which are congested and journeys will take longer.

If you're travelling between the M60 and Manchester use the below alternatives.

➡️ A6 Stockport Road - from M60 use Junction 1.

➡️ A5103 Ashton Old Road - from M60 use junction 23

🟢 Local trips in the Reddish and Gorton area will be quicker by walking and cycling.

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!

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

Alternative travel

Update: Buses on diversion due to the closure of Hyde Road.

It's 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.

Bus 🚌

The 201, 202, 203, 205 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.

Metrolink 🚈

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.

Train 🚂

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 Park and Ride facilities at the following locations:

  • Guide Bridge 115 Spaces
  • Broadbottom 100 Spaces
