Oxford Road bus work update

Bus priority package: Weekend working between Moss Lane East and Hathersage Road

Further to a previous updates, Transport for Greater Manchester have confirmed that the resurfacing of Moss Lane East to Hathersage Road will take place this weekend. This work includes the resurfacing of the Hathersage Road junction itself.

Starting at 6.30am on Friday 19 August and finishing late on Monday evening the resurfacing will mean that the road is closed in both directions between these points, including a full closure of the Hathersage Road junction.

Diversion signs will be in place to help people plan their journey around this work and we have produced both driver and cyclist maps which can be found on our website. Please note, the maps also reference the other diversions in place further along the corridor and will only be valid between Friday 19 and late Monday 22 August.

A number of bus services will be operating an updated diversion route and we’ve compiled details of the affected services on TfGMs website.

Also to note:

In addition to the work this weekend, from Monday 22 August through to Friday 26 August, both Nelson Street and Denmark Road will be closed at their junctions with Oxford Road to enable further resurfacing work to take place.

The attached maps, for drivers and cyclists, which will be valid from Monday through to next Friday. TfGMs website will be updated on Monday afternoon to reflect the imminent completion of the weekend work and the start of Monday’s work at Nelson Street and Denmark Road.
