Starting on Wed 29 August, Manchester City Council and Salford City Council will begin major improvement works on six junctions on and around Regent Road.

The work is scheduled to take 12 months to complete and during this time Regent Road will be reduced from two lanes to one lane in each direction. As a result journey times are expected to increase significantly, especially during the morning and evening peaks.

Journey times for motorists will significantly increase, for example:

  • During the morning peak, travel into the city centre via the M602, Regent Road and on to the Mancunian Way is expected to increase from around 15-20mins to at least 25-30mins.
  • During the evening peak, journeys out of the city centre along the Mancunian Way, Regent Road and on to the M602 are expected to increase from around 20-25mins to at least 40-45mins.

We would advise anyone travelling to see a matinee or evening performance to take this into consideration and add extra time to their journey.
