Reminder: Bus Gates are in operation

Motorists are reminded that the Bus Gates on Portland Street and Oxford Road are now in operation.

A new concept for Greater Manchester, a Bus Gate marks a section of road where priority is given to buses, cyclists and taxis, and general traffic is prohibited.

Bus Gates have been created to improve bus services by reducing journey times and increasing reliability. They provide a better service for passengers, ultimately contributing to and encouraging greater use of public transport.

The Bus Gates are well signed and motorists should follow the alternative routes.
