Changes to Oxford Road for pedestrians

29 Jun 2015

Access to Precinct changed and pavement narrowed at Manchester Museum

Oxford Road

As part of the ongoing bridge demolition works, general access to the Precinct level (including Devonshire House at all levels) is now closed for health, safety and security purposes. The stairs and escalator to Oxford Road are now closed, as well as the ramp outside Blackwell's. 

For the foreseeable future, access will still be maintained from a small area of the Precinct to Harold Hankins Building via MBS West, but the interconnecting doors will only operate on the MBS security access system. There are no changes to accessing the Precinct level on the Crawford House side of Oxford Road.

In addition, the scaffolding along Oxford Road on the East Elevation of The Manchester Museum is now being dismantled. This will lead to some temporary restrictions to the pavement width until the works are complete prior to the summer Graduation at the beginning of July.

Further information

Specific arrangements to access the Precinct can be made by contacting the University’s project manager Jim Boland on:

James will contact Faculty Estates to make the necessary arrangements.
