Manchester Airport Tunnel Refurbishment

Starting in early May, Manchester Airport will be installing new lighting and repainting both the north and southbound A538 airport tunnels, with the works running until September 2017.

The works will begin first in the Northbound tunnel with contraflow in place from May until the end of June and the Southbound tunnel towards Wilmslow from July to August.

There will also be one overnight closure in early May between the hours of 10pm and 5am.

Whilst the work is taking place, you will not be able to turn right onto the A538 from Mill Lane and diversions will be in place here until the work has been completed.

Further information will be issued nearer to the time of the works.
