Polite Notice: the Exhibition Footbridge (owned by TfGM) that links Deansgate station to the Deansgate Castlefield tram stop and the covered stairs to Whitworth Street  level access will be closed for refurbishment from January 19th for up to 6 months. The diversionary route for accessing the tram stop is quite long unfortunately.
