Bolton Road will remain closed at its junction with Egerton St, near Moses Gate Railway Station.
The road closed last night following a water mains burst adjacent to the railway bridge at the station.
Traffic is being diverted via Green Lane, Bradford Road, Plodder Lane and Glynne Street.
Rail replacement bus services are also being diverted. Please check with Transport for Greater Manchester (@OfficialTfGM) for updates.
Network Rail is in contact with United Utilities about repairs to the burst water main and they are assessing what damage has been caused to the bridge and railway track.
We are liaising closely with Network Rail and United Utilities and we will update the public about how long the road needs to remain closed to enable work to take place.
