Metrolink’s Second City Crossing and permanent new traffic priorities
20 Dec 2016
Alongside the transformation of the Oxford Road corridor, the Metrolink Second City Crossing is also nearing completion and from 8 January, there will be permanent changes to city centre roads to ensure trams, buses, cars and bikes can share the space with each other
The changes mostly affect Princess Street and Cross Street.
While drivers will be used to restrictions and diversions imposed during the construction of the tram tracks, the introduction of new and permanent changes in the city as well as the closure of Brook Street for work could combine to exacerbate congestion on already-busy routes, especially as both occur around the same time.
