Manchester City Council is reinstating the experimental traffic order to close Victoria Street in the city centre to traffic from 5am on Sunday 25 March 2012.
The traffic order was suspended on 5 March due to works impacting on the new traffic layout on Chapel Street in Salford not being complete. This work has now been completed which means that the Victoria Street road closure can be put back in place.
Motorists wanting to get around the city centre should use the Inner Ring Road and advance notice of the changes to the traffic layout are in place on Alan Turing Way / Queens Road in the north and Mancunian Way / Trinity Way in the south of the city.
For drivers already on Deansgate, Victoria Bridge Street will be open to two way traffic allowing access both ways.
Access to city centre premises and car parks will be maintained when Victoria Street closes although access routes will change.
An additional temporary traffic order will be in place on Deansgate to accommodate the Sport Relief Mile which is taking place this Sunday 25 March. Deansgate will be closed from 9.30 am - 3.00pm between Peter Street and Bridge Street.
