Closure of Oxford Road on Wednesday 4th January for 5 days

Oxford Road wll close again for a short period from Wednesday 4th January 2017.  The 147 will be affected for three days until Friday 6th January. The route should be back to normal by Monday 9th January.

Oxford Road will be closed between Booth St and Charles St so the buses will not be able to service All Saints and the area around the old BBC site

The diversion will be as follows:

From Piccadilly Station

Normal route to Charles St.  Turn left onto Princess St.  South along Upper Brook St as far as Dover St.  Turn right onto Dover St and left onto Oxford Road then normal route through and round the hospitals.

From hospitals

Normal route to Booth St.  Turn right onto Booth st West, left onto Upper Brook st and then straight up to Whitworth St.  Turn right and then direct to Station.

NB we are advised that the right turn from Princess St onto Charles St will not be possible. We will therefore not be able to serve Sackville st en route to teh station. Paassengers for Sackville St will need to alight on Whitworth St at Whitworth Gardens


This is the first of four or five Oxford Road closures between January and  April when the Oxford Road work is due for completion
