Travel to and from campus – severe weather warning/Clifton Bridge closure

February 9th, 2020

Travel to and from campus is likely to be affected by Storm Ciara and the closure of Clifton Bridge for the early part of the week. Please be aware of potential delays and plan journeys and working arrangements accordingly.

Clifton Bridge closure
The A52 Clifton Bridge is closed eastbound within the junction of the A453 at Queens Drive Interchange. Repair teams are carrying out investigations into damaged steel underneath the road, prompting the closure of the eastbound carriageway. The closure and diversions are expected to be in place until Wednesday at the earliest.

In addition to the eastbound carriageway closure, lane two will be closed westbound heading into Nottingham, along with the A52 eastbound entry slip from the A6005 near the Queen’s Medical Centre.

Information on the closure and diversions is available on the Highways England website and East Midlands Twitter feed.

This is causing severe delays at peak travel periods across Nottingham, including access on and off our Nottingham campuses. Colleagues should plan journeys in advance, stagger any arrival and departure times and use public transport where possible – agreeing any change of working patterns with line managers in advance.

Severe weather protocol
If you are unable to travel to your place of work due to severe weather conditions, contact your line manager, or nominee, prior to your normal start time – or as soon as possible thereafter.

Subject to approval and operational needs, employees may be able to work from home – though there will be roles that cannot be completed from home. Alternatively, you and your manager could agree annual leave, unpaid leave or other arrangements as appropriate.

Full information is available on the HR webpages.

Updates on travel delays will be posted on Staff Room and Campus News as new information becomes available.
