Changes in road use on University Park and Jubilee Campus – UPDATED Weds 16 Sept

September 16th, 2020

A number of roads across the University estate will be pedestrianised to enhance the safety of staff and students.

The work, which will enable social distancing measures and reduce numbers of people on pavements in busy areas, will begin on Wednesday 2 September to be in place for the start of term. It has been designed to allow cyclist use where possible, have a minimal impact on car parking spaces and to support emergency service vehicle traffic when necessary.

Changes on University Park
Coates Road will be pedestrianised between 8.30am and 6pm. This will increase the space for pedestrians and avoid large concentrations of staff and students in the areas around Coates Auditorium, Engineering Buildings, Biodiscovery Institute and routes to the Medical School.

All vehicular access to the parking adjacent to the Engineering Laboratories should enter from Science Road, no longer from the A52.

East Drive will be closed to all vehicles from the junction with Portland Hill to the Trent Building. The road will become a shared space for pedestrians and cyclists. The car park on the East side of the Trent building will be closed and used for temporary structures.

Cut Through Lane will be widened between Keighton Hill roundabout and Library Road. Cars and cyclists will still be able to travel through although bus stops will be removed. Bus users will be able to use the stops at East Drive and George Green Library.

Changes on Jubilee Campus
The Northbound carriageway of the spine road between the Dearing Building and Business School North will be pedestrianised.

Parking Bays will be removed from the northbound carriage way between Si Yuan Centre and the Dearing Building. Traffic entering from Derby Road will be diverted to Triumph Road (adjacent to the Jubilee Conference Centre).

Library Road
will be partially closed in one direction from Cut Through Lane towards the Downs (northerly direction) to enable sufficient space for safe queue management for access to Hallward Library.
