Maps index page
Input your start location and the destination you want to go to. Then click "Go " to find your route.
You may choose alternative modes of travel by car, bike or walking, if you wish. Expand the route map using the + sign, to see more details. Step by step driving directions are shown below the driving map.
If the place names or postcodes that you type in for your starting point and destination are not the expected places, such as a similar named place in a different country or county then try adding additional words such as the wanted country or county.
Look out for road traffic conditions. If you see roads marked in orange, red or black this indicated traffic congestion. Black is a solid traffic jam.
This "driving directions Manchester" page is based on a Google Maps API example.
If you find errors in the mapping please look along the lower edge of the map and click on the link about which companies are responsible for the mapping data and the satellite images. If you go to the web sites of those companies it is sometimes possible to submit your observations and eventually get the maps updated. I have done this few times and it does get results but it may take some time, like a few months!
