Updates: Closure of Oxford Street between Whitworth Street and Portland Street

Bus priority package: Closure of Oxford Street between Whitworth Street and Portland Street from Tuesday 30 August

The transformation of the Oxford Road corridor is ongoing and there is additional work due to start on Tuesday 30 August.

To enable further resurfacing work to take place, Oxford Street will close in both directions between Whitworth Street and Portland Street.

The closure will come into effect at 4am on Tuesday 30 August and will be in place until the morning of Monday 5 September.

A full closure between Charles Street and Portland Street, coupled with the closure of Whitworth Street at its junction with Oxford Street, is required to ensure that the work can be carried out safely and efficiently.

Diversion signs will be in place to help people plan their journey around this work and we are producing driver and cyclist maps which will be publicly accessible from next Tuesday.

In addition, a number of bus services will be operating an updated diversion route and will be announced shortly.
