The Bridge Street bus gate
New bus gate
This bus gate has been in operation since December 2022. It's one-way; westbound - or from Manchester towards Salford - from just west of Left Bank on the A34 Bridge Street to the Albert Bridge.
That part of the road is now only open to buses, black cabs and pedal cycles: this rule applies 24 hours a day. When we say buses we mean 'motor vehicles built or adapted to carry a minimum of 9 passengers (not including the driver.)'
Penalty Charge Notices
If you enter a bus lane or use a bus gate, you may get a PCN of £60, which will reduce to £30 if you pay within 21 days.
Because this is a new bus gate, Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) have only been issued since 11 January 2023.
