Palatine Road pavement replacement

From Monday 9 September to Thursday 10 October 2019, we will be replacing pavements along Palatine Road. This is taking place from the junction of Oak Road to The Christie car park C (multi-storey), and will be on The Christie side of the pavement only.

You can read more about this work in our Palatine Road pavement replacement letter.

Paterson redevelopment project

In 2018, The Christie, The University of Manchester and Cancer Research UK, announced plans for the Paterson redevelopment project, following the fire at the Paterson building in 2017.

For information relating to the Paterson redevelopment project and associated updates, please visit the dedicated project page.

You can also find out about the plans for the demolition of the current Paterson site on our development of the Paterson page.

Due to the ongoing Paterson demolition, there will be temporary traffic lights on Wilmslow Road on 7 and 8 September 2019.

On 14, 15, 21 and 22 September 2019, the footpath near to the Wilmslow Road Entrance will be closed. Diversions for pedestrians will be in place.

For details, please see our road diversions map.

Please note, during the excavation and cabling works, one way traffic is maintained down Oak Road.  These works are taking place across weekends only. The resurfacing works are taking place in two phases for two halves of the road and there will be a full road closure, with clear diversions in place. The road diversions will be made clear by signage surrounding the site.

There will be a Banks Man on hand during the working hours to help direct residents to their properties. Outside of working hours, residents can still access their properties via the clearly signposted diversion routes.

Please note, no vehicles can be parked on Oak Road during the whole duration of these works. All parked cars need to be removed from Oak Road before the works are due to commence, ideally the night before. Ambulances and other emergency vehicles will be accommodated during works. Wayfinding will be provided for the users of the hospital.
