Reminder Of Road Closures For Restoration Of Manchester City Centre Railway Bridges

Published on : Tuesday, February 5, 2019

Network RailMotorists are being reminded that a project to refurbish three historic railway bridges in Manchester city centre ramps up this week.

 

The three Grade II listed structures over Great Ducie Street and Victoria Street, to the west of Manchester Victoria station, are being repaired, cleaned and painted as part of the Great North Rail Project.

 

The work will have an impact on road traffic through the area over the coming months, but trains will not be affected.

 

Scaffolding has been installed beneath and around the bridges, with the following road closures needed to complete the work safely.

 

  • Victoria Street will be fully closed to road traffic from 2am on Friday (8 February) until Wednesday 27 February 2019.
  • Mirabel Street has been closed at the Victoria Street junction until the end of June 2019.
  • A further full closure of Victoria Street is needed from 3 May to 20 May 2019.

 

 

While diversions for traffic will be in place during the road closures, pedestrian access will not be affected and trains will continue to run as normal.

 

Sarah Padmore, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: “As part of the Great North Rail Project, we are carrying out vital repair work to three bridge structures which support the railway on the western side of Manchester Victoria station.

 

“I’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank local people and road users in advance for their patience while we deliver this essential work.”

 

The bridges will be grit blasted to expose the metal structures, allowing engineers to carry out vital repairs before repainting them to their Victorian splendour.
