Despite no road closures needing to take place, a lane closure on Manchester Road heading towards Oldham will be required at the location, so motorists have been urged to plan their journeys in advance.

Transport for Greater Manchester will be carrying out work at the site, while United Utilities are going to repair a faulty sewer at the same time.
