Directions to Salford Civic Centre, Swinton

Salford Civic Centre is on Chorley Road (A6) in the centre of Swinton at its junction with Partington Lane (B5231), approximately a quarter of a mile north of the East Lancashire Road (A580) in north west Greater Manchester.

Getting to the Civic Centre from the M60 Manchester Orbital

If you are driving to the Civic Centre via the M60 motorway, eastbound (clockwise) traffic should exit at junction 13 (Worsley) and follow the A572 towards Swinton. Westbound (anti-clockwise) traffic should leave at junction 16 (Swinton) and turn left onto the A666.

Please note: there is no eastbound/clockwise exit on the M60 at junction 14, 15, and 16. Also there is no westbound/anti-clockwise exit on the M60 at junction 14 and 15.

A visitor's car park is available at the front of Unity House; all visitors must obtain a ticket as soon as they arrive and display this in their windscreen.

Getting to the Civic Centre by public transport

Council offices on and around Chorley Road in Swinton are well served by public transport. During working hours bus number 36 operates between Bolton and Manchester every ten minutes and so provides links between Swinton and Little Hulton, Walkden and Salford University.

Other services that operate between Manchester and Swinton are the 32, this is the fastest route but stops on the East Lancs and so requires a ten minute walk up Partington Lane to the Civic Centre. You can also take the 12, 25, 26 and 37.

The 22 service (between Stockport and Eccles) runs about every half an hour. See below for timetable information.

Swinton Railway Station is a short walk away and provides direct services twice an hour to Wigan, Walkden, Salford, Manchester and Rochdale, plus destinations further afield.
