    Important Travel Update – Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers


    Due to a large fire in the Openshaw area, Ashton Old Road is currently closed between Fairfield Street and Alan Turing Way.


    Significant disruption is expected for the rest of the day around the area. You are advised to seek an alternative route and allow extra time when travelling to and from the stadium this evening.


    If you are driving, use M60 Junction 24 or 22 for the Etihad. Local buses are being diverted away from the area, please follow @stagecoachGM for updates. There are currently no changes to the Metrolink but keep up to date @MCRMetrolink


    Any further updates from Transport for Greater Manchester will be posted here.

    If you are coming from the Ardwick, Brunswick or Stockport side make for Pin Mill Brow then do a right onto Ashton New RD and park around there, or take second right and head to Ancoats and park around there, loads of car parks that side of ground

    Forgot to add if your coming from Ashton or Stalybridge the road forks at Audenshaw, take the right fork and your on the New Rd, good job it's the League cup and not a Prem game

    Is the new road still ok to get down?
    Obviously will be busier though with the old road being shut?

    That's some stretch to close between Fairfield St and Alan Turing Way.

    Town is gridlock. So buses may take an age. Metro or walk.
