Work on Oxford Road bus priority scheme begins this summer

18 Jun 2015

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) have announced that work to introduce revolutionary plans for Oxford Road will begin in summer 2015

Oxford Road bus priority scheme

Last year, following an extensive period of public consultation and stakeholder engagement, TfGM released a fly-through video showing the proposals for Oxford Road.

The plans featured:

  • ‘Dutch-style’ cycle lanes on both sides of the carriageway;
  • cycle bypass lanes at bus stops;
  • a one-mile long section for buses, hackney carriages and emergency vehicles between Hathersage Road and Grosvenor Street;
  • an improved pedestrian environment along the whole corridor.

TfGM and their delivery partners at Manchester City Council have recently announced that work to introduce these revolutionary plans for Oxford Road will begin this summer. The detail of the plans has been finalised and the partners hope to deliver a scheme that improves the daily lives of all users of the Oxford Road for generations to come.

TfGM and the City are working in partnership with key stakeholders, including the University, to ensure minimal disruption during construction and will share further details soon.
