Road closures for Manchester City trophy parade

14 May 2012

Manchester City FC will be holding an open-top bus trophy parade this evening (Monday 14 May), to mark the Club’s first league title win in 44 years.

Albert Square

The parade will take place in Manchester city centre from 6.30pm, meaning that some roads will be closed and buses on and around the parade route will be diverted. Large numbers of people are expected to come to the parade, so passengers can expect the city centre to be crowded.

The open-top bus tour will start from Albert Square at 6.30pm and travel through the city centre along Princess Street, Portland Street, Chepstow Street, Great Bridgewater Street, Albion Street, Whitworth Street West, Deansgate, St Mary's Gate, Corporation Street and Exchange Square, where the parade will end at 7.45pm.
