Trafford Road Improvement Scheme Resurfacing Works

Latest updates

Updated 29 September

On 23 August, the resurfacing works commenced along Trafford Road from The Quays to the M602 Roundabout. Due to unforeseen circumstances, this work will now be extended into November 2022.

This will result in road closures at night (from 7pm) between the M602 roundabout and the White City roundabout.

Road users should plan before every journey - particularly on matchdays at Old Trafford and Emirates Old Trafford. On Old Trafford matchdays, road users can expect to add an extra 25 minutes to their journey if they are travelling via Trafford Road. It is advised that road users also follow-on street diversion signage. The work will be completed in stages so there will be no continuous road closures.

This page will continue to be updated. Please check back for the latest information.
