Councillor Kate Chappell said: "We have been working closely with United Utilities to make sure traffic can begin flowing as quickly as possible, and can now confirm that both lanes of the Mancunian Way's westbound carriageway will reopen by 5am tomorrow (Tuesday September 1) with a contraflow system enabling traffic to move in both directions.

"Due to the ongoing nature of the roadworks we will be introducing a temporary 20mph speed limit and restricting larger vehicles on these lanes."

The council said it is expecting heavy traffic on the Mancunian Way tomorrow and are asking motorists to use alternative routes if possible in order to reduce congestion across the highway network.
