We have just received the following information regarding the drop off and coach parking details for this Sunday's Manchester March for the Alternative. Please forward to anyone you know is organising coaches for the event.
Coaches for the main march are advised to approach via the inner ring road and Trinity Way clock wise, exiting into New Quay street to access Water Street B5225 from the north – this will be one way and access will be for coaches and access for visitors of the Victoria and Albert Marriott Hotel only for safe drop off in Water Street.
Coaches will be met by stewards and given a reference number and an allocation to a parking area. The current plans are that coaches will exit Water Street and re-join Trinity Way, inner ring road anti clock wise.
For Car Park 1 (Q Park at rear of No 1 First Street) continue onto Mancunian Way low level exiting on slip road signed for Manchester Airport and Petersfields, Cambridge Street and second left into Hulme Street for parking. This will also be the pick up for the coaches. If this car park becomes full we are making arrangements for a second park.
For this second Car park (Euro Park Deansgate/Chester Street) continue onto Mancunian Way low level exiting on slip road signed for Manchester Airport and Petersfields, via Medlock Street, City Road East/Great Jackson Street and then directly into the car park. This will also be the pick up for these coaches.
There will be a small charge for these car parks.
The short March route will assemble at Barbirolli Square from 12.45, as this is just over half kilometre from the Q Park Car Park at the rear of the rally site any one who wants to join the short route to park in the Q Park and then make their way the short distance to the assembly point.
