Work to improve potholes around campus due to start

December 7th, 2023

The university’s Estates Team will be beginning a programme of work over the next few weeks to improve some of the more significant potholes around our UK campuses.

Using feedback gathered from reports by road users, the team have compiled a list of most impactful potholes and have identified and prioritised them accordingly.

A contractor has been appointed to carry out the works, which are scheduled to be complete over the next two – four weeks, subject to suitable weather.

Areas with significant potholes identified include:

University Park

  • Bottom of Jubilee Avenue near Florence Boot Hall
  • North Exit, out bound near the gate house
  • Entrance to Cripps Annexe
  • Ancaster car park
  • Physics car park

Sutton Bonington

  • Entrance to Car Park 4, near Phytotron/Agronomy Store


  • Access road outside of Melton Hall
  • Car park behind Sports Centre

The team anticipates that work to repair the potholes will take place outside of peak traffic times, with maintenance vans, temporary barriers and traffic management in place during the repairs.

These should only cause minor delays to traffic and we thank people for their patience and understanding during this time.

The team can’t tackle every imperfection at once, but hopefully the work in the next few weeks will make an improvement to how people travel around campus.

A wider resurfacing repairs plan has also been proposed and could be implemented later this financial year or early next.

For any questions or queries, please contact Mark Buckby in the Estates Team
