Buses to drive at 20 miles per hour in Manchester

Buses are to drive at 20 miles per hour within Manchester city centre under a new voluntary code of conduct for operators.

All bus companies running services into the city centre are expected to sign up to the CityPLAN agreement which means drivers will stick to the limit within the inner ring road.

They'll drive at 10mph or less in busy locations such as Parker Street, Oldham Street and Shudehill Interchange.

Manchester City Council say they're looking into ways of creating more 20 mile per hour zones across the city. They also expect the move to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
