Concreteophobes look away now. The Mancunian Way (A57(M)) runs from Hulme to Ardwick and serves as part of the city's inner ring road. Mostly built in 1964-67 by the council's City Engineers and G. Maunsell & Partners, it was extended east to Ardwick in 1992.
On the right are former University of Manchester Institute for Science and Technology buildings. The prominent one is the Faraday Tower (SJ8497 : Faraday Tower, Sackville Street, Manchester).
