Manchester’s Busiest Roundabout Under Construction

Some major changes are expected on the famous junction-the junction where Princess Road meets Medlock Street and Manchurian Way.

The preparatory work is commencing today.

According to the Transport for Greater Manchester(TfGM) the work will not begin in peak traffic hours but still, warnings are being issued for all the drivers.

Around £10million is going to be spent on the replacement of this old roundabout with a new one, which is also going to have widened roads. This new layout of roads will let people have direct access to the Manchurian way and city center from Princess Road.

This project will also cover the widening of all the slip roads on and off the Manchurian Way.

This scheme also includes better footpaths, lush and aesthetically appealing landscapes and easy access for the cyclists.

The purpose of this project is to ease down the pressure and congestion of traffic on the inner ring road of the city. This project is aiming to reduce air pollution in this area well.

From October to November (the first phase), all the subways will be closed, security at the site will be achieved and the drainage work will be completed.

Initially, five million pounds are secured during a bid.

Furthermore, Mayor Challenge Fund also added 2.9 million pounds.

According to the council, it is near to impossible to begin this scheme unless or until the completion of the Regent Rod roadworks.
