The Oxford Road bus gate
There are bus gates on Oxford Road.
This means that parts of the road are only open to buses, black cabs and pedal cycles from 6am to 9pm every day.
By buses we mean motor vehicles built or adapted to carry more than eight people (not including the driver).
If you drive there in any other vehicle during these hours you could be fined up to £90.
One bus gate covers the area between Hathersage Road, near Whitworth Park, and Booth Street East and West, near the Royal Northern College of Music in both directions.
The other bus gate goes from Whitworth Street West up to Portland Street. This section just covers traffic heading north, towards the city centre.
Bus gates will be marked with standard ‘no motor vehicles’ signs – a red circle with a motorbike above a car inside.
