Temporary Closure of Central Drive affecting all traffic
18 December 2019

Saturday 4th January 2020, 07:00 until 17:00

Sunday 5th January 2020, 07:00 until 17:00

As part of the construction of the new Energy Centre on the North Manchester site, a crane lift will require the full closure of Central Drive on the above dates to allow the lift to take place safely.  This will require the diversion of all vehicles, including fire appliances, ambulances and bus routes for the period of the closures.

Traffic Management staff will be located at the locations detailed on the plan during the closures with signage and cones/ barriers in place. Please follow the instructions of any traffic management staff. 

The Fire Brigade, NWAS and bus operators have been made aware of the closure and alternative routes for the closure period.  A diversion route has been arranged for Trust vehicles and ambulances, but is not suitable for use by general traffic or large vehicles.

If you would use Central Drive on these dates, please seek an alternative route to avoid the closure and be aware that some disruption to parking and access may be taking place over the weekend in conjunction with the closure. 

Thank you for your patience and co-operation during these construction works and our apologies for the disruptions that these necessary works will cause.
