University Boulevard closure for works

August 5th, 2016

From 8pm Friday 5 August until 5am Monday 8 August, University Boulevard will be closed from Beeston Road to the roundabout at Broadgate/West Entrance to the University.

This includes full closure of Queens Road East southbound from University Boulevard to Tattershall Drive and northbound from Tattershall Drive to University Boulevard. Access to the Hockey Club, Tennis Centre and Nottingham Science Park will be maintained. Access to the University of Nottingham, including Nottingham Lakeside Arts and Highfields Park, will not be possible from University Boulevard. Visitors to Lakeside Arts Centre and Highfields are advised to enter the University Park Campus via the north and west entrances.

For the duration of the closure, the Sutton Bonington hopper bus (901) and 34 service will not stop at the Arts Centre bus stop. The nearest alternative stop is East Drive.

The full closure is scheduled for 8pm on Friday 5 August; it is planned for Queens Road East to be completed first by 7am Saturday 6 August to reduce the diversion. From 7am Saturday 6 August, the west-bound carriageway will open to service Science Park, the Tennis Centre and the Hockey Club. Exiting these facilities will be in a westerly direction only and will be available until 8pm only. During this period, works will continue on the eastbound carriageway under a full closure and lane closures on the westbound carriageway. At 8pm, the westbound carriageway will close once more and works will again continue in both the east and west-bound carriageways in full capacity. The full closure of University Boulevard is expected to last until 5am on Monday 8 August.
