Permanent changes to Oxford Street:

From Sunday 20 November a number of permanent changes to Oxford Street will come into effect.

The changes are to allow a bus, cycle and pedestrian priority zone between Whitworth Street and Portland Street and will include making part of the road open to two-way traffic.

Resurfacing work on Oxford Road:

The next phase of resurfacing work will get under way on Saturday 26 November and will require a section of Oxford Road to be closed to all traffic.

To enable the work to be completed safely and efficiently a full closure will come into effect between Brunswick Street, up to and including the junction of Booth Street East and West.

TfGM recognises that Booth Street represents the main east-west crossing point for motorists and so the work will be split up to minimise inconvenience. To achieve this, the closure of Booth Street will only take place over the weekends of 26/27 November and 3/4 December. During the week the Booth Street junction will remain open while the resurfacing work continues between Brunswick Street and Booth Street.

This phase of work will be completed by the end of Sunday 4 December.
