Manchester Salford Inner Relief Route – Major Works

15th Aug 2018

Major road improvement works on one of the busiest routes in and out of Manchester and Salford.

The work will last for 12 months from August 2018 and will have a major impact on journey times.

The work will improve capacity by up to 20% at six major junctions in and around Regent Road, reducing congestion and delays.

  1. The junction of Dawson Street, Regent Road, Trinity Way and Water Street
  2. The junction of Regent Road and Ordsall Lane (Salford)
  3. The junction of Regent Road and Oldfield Road (Salford)
  4. The Mancunian Way, A56, A5067 roundabout
  5. The junction of Trinity Way and Hampson Street
  6. The junction of Hampson Street, East Ordsall Lane and Middlewood Street

TfGM advise people to plan ahead to Re-Route, Re-Time, Re-Mode and Reduce journeys, especially during peak morning and evening commuter times.

Businesses are encouraged to promote flexible working, walking, cycling, public transport and car-sharing to employees where possible.

Regular analysis of how the works are impacting travel and businesses will be undertaken weekly by TfGM to alter specific messaging and travel advice.
