Overnight resurfacing carriageway work is taking place at Moorgate and Derby Way in Bury until Sunday 15 August as part of Bury Council’s Highway Investment Strategy.

This work will be undertaken in three phases and will impact different services at different stages of the project.

In order to allow this work to take place it will be necessary to close sections of Moorgate, Derby Way and Walmersley Road (in various sections) to all vehicles.

As a result, the roads surrounding the works may be congested, slow moving and shorter trips in local areas may be quicker by walking and cycling.

This page will continue to be updated throughout the works, giving you alternative travel options and the best times to travel.

Driving

These closures will be in place overnight from 8pm to 3am and temporary diversion routes will be in place.

As works progress it will also be necessary to restrict access to/from some of the adjoining side streets that connect with Moorgate, Derby Way and Walmersley Road.

Bury Council will try to maintain access to all businesses and properties during the works however, it must be noted that on occasion this access may be limited when removing or replacing the road surface across side roads /access points.

If you are planning on driving around the area please plan ahead – considering an alternative route – and allowing more time for your journey.

All bus services will operate during these works but may be subject to delays at times and some bus stops may be closed/relocated.

The following services will be affected: 467, 468, 472, 474 and 483
