So Barlow Moor Road doesn't do very well when it comes to being open to traffic. First the now infamous Didsbury Hole, then the Didsbury Hole returned and now roadworks around the main junction in Didsbury Village.
Although Barlow Moor Road is open, you can't get on to it from Wilmslow Road, and if you drive towards Didsbury Village down Barlow Moor Road, you are only supposed to turn left. We however saw several drivers veering around the cones to turn right, and even saw this Stagecoach bus who had got it badly wrong, doing a u-turn on Barlow Moor Road using Crossway. Naughty.
