Overnight work on Welcome arch

Manchester airport diversion for 2 nights from the 27th May
airport at night

Passengers travelling from Manchester airport on the two nights beginning next Tuesday 27th of May will experience a road closure at the Outward Lane. The work is only planned for night-time when airport traffic is light.

Traffic will be diverted from the end of the M56 for T1 and T3 and Premier Park down Ringway Road West and into the Airport past the Airport hotel via Ringway Road.

Petrol station traffic will still be able to access the Station off Outwood Lane via the exit via World Way onto the M56

The reason for the overnight closure between 21.00 and 05.00 is the completion of the Welcome arch and the removal of the airport structure on the Hilton roundabout. Manchester airport intend to finish the work over a two night period, however if there are moderately high winds or other weather delays the overnight work may overrun.

If you are due to fly from Manchester airport and are looking to park at an off site long stay car park - the Manchester airport Shuttle Park - is an excellent parking option and the prices are very competitive.
