Northern Quarter - Partial Pedestrianisation of Thomas Street
Northern Quarter - Partial Pedestrianisation of Thomas Street
After its decision to part-pedestrianise Deansgate, the city council has taken another step towards making the city more pedestrian-friendly by closing off the Thomas Street in the Northern Quarter to cars as part of a plan to encourage active travel around the city and make social distancing easier as coronavirus lockdown is lifted. From 30 May, Thomas Street will be closed to vehicles seven days a week, with the exception of daily windows for loading from 6am to 10am and 6pm to 7pm. The council hopes that as lockdown measures are gradually relaxed the street, which is home to a number of bars and restaurants, will return to being a thriving part of the Northern Quarter, enjoyed by visitors and residents (LinkExternal link Place North West).
