Commuters urged to plan ahead this Wednesday

3 December 2018
Oxford Road Stations

If you're travelling around Manchester on Wednesday night (5 December) please plan ahead as roads in and out of the city will be busier than usual.

Manchester United take on Arsenal in front of 75,000 fans at Old Trafford. Ongoing improvement work is also taking place on Regent Road and with many people visiting the Christmas Markets, your journey could take longer in the evening.

If you're able to, please consider either using public transport or travelling outside of rush hour on Wednesday – why not stay in the city to do some festive shopping at the Christmas Markets?

We've created a travel advice page and will again be trialling free shuttle buses direct to Old Trafford from two new pop-up park and ride sites at the AJ Bell Stadium and Event City, close to the Trafford Centre.
