COVID-19 update: 19 November 2020

In our last update on Tuesday 17 November, we explained that Manchester City Council’s Highways Department have given consent to temporarily close a section of Wilmslow Road to vehicles and cyclists. The closure comes into effect from 8am on Saturday 21 November until 8pm on Sunday 22 November, and the closure is required to allow the building of the second tower crane.  

A section of roadway in front of the building site will be closed and the Highway Department’s appointed contractor will ensure diversion signs are put in place to redirect traffic onto Cotton Lane, Oak Road and Tatton Grove, which will all remain open.

The T junction of Kinnaird Road and Wilmslow Road will be closed. Vehicle access to Kinnaird Road will be via Rathen Road and Firth Road, which will remain open as normal.

Vehicle access to residents’ driveways on Wilmslow Road and pedestrian access to all properties will remain open and pedestrian pathway and access to the properties on Wilmslow Road will be unaffected by this closure.
