Mancunian Way weekend closure

22 Mar 2018

For those travelling through Manchester this weekend, Mancunian Way will be closing for a maintenance and inspection review, and then filming for a television series


This will take place:

  • 8am to 6pm on Saturday, 24 March - a complete closure between Dawson Street and Fairfield Street at all times
  • 8am to 6pm on Sunday, 25 March - a complete closure between Dawson Street and Fairfield Street at all times
  • 6pm on Sunday, 25 March until 5am on Monday, 26 March - Mancunian Way High Level Section between Cambridge Street and Medlock Street

There is an increased risk of roads congestion in the area, particularly between 10am and 4pm, and journey times for drivers and bus passengers are likely to be adversely affected as a result.

If you are travelling to the following events please ensure you allow enough time as roads may be busier than usual.

  • Thirty Seconds to Mars at Manchester Arena, Saturday, 24 March
  • The Manchester Bike Show at EventCity, Saturday, 24 & Sunday, 25 March
  • The Blue City 5K at Etihad Stadium, Sunday, 25 March

Transport for Greater Manchester has provided help and advice to keep you moving so you can prepare and minimise the effect on your travel plans.
