The Council and democracy Northern Quarter closures and traffic-flow changes

As the UK plans for the end of the coronavirus lockdown, and following the extended closure times of Thomas Street in May, we have now decided to make two further road closures in the area to help with social distancing. This will support people to return to the city and start to rebuild the economy. We are also making Withy Grove one-way, to encourage walking and cycling in the area.

While these changes are currently temporary, the decision to make them was prompted by feedback from a consultation about walking and cycling in the Northern Quarter carried out earlier this year. The feedback from this saw a significant number of people calling for more pedestrianisation of the area, the closure of Stevenson Square, and improvements in the Ducie Street (Piccadilly Station approach) area. 

Closures and traffic-flow changes on;
