Mancunian Way reopens after crashes cause city centre chaos
There are reports of at least one crash on the Mancunian Way which has led to its closure westbound. The A57(M) is closed from its junction with London Road and the Chester Road roundabout following a collision. It has also been reported that there has been a crash on the opposite carriageway in the same area.
Delays are reported in both directions, with queues building on roads close by including Regent Road. Traffic is being urged to avoid the area and divert using Whitworth Street West, Whitworth Street, Fairfield Street, Grosvenor Street and Booth Street. The busy Hyde Road in Gorton has also been closed this morning because of a burst water main.
