Vernon Road will re-open 6am on Monday 9 July. Essential work will be complete and all routes open as usual.

Date of disruption: Monday 4 June – Friday 6 July

Essential work will take place on Vernon Road to divert a brick culvert into the drainage system for Nexus. This work is part of the two-year, £38m investment scheme to construct Nexus; a new enterprise centre.

Services to be interrupted:
There will be no access to the Multi-storey car park from Woodhouse Lane between Monday 4 June and Friday 6 July 2018. Access will only be possible during this time via Calverley Street and Willow Terrace Road,  over the inner ring road bridge. As an alternative, the Estates Service have acquired space at Woodhouse Moor for Permit holders to park on Woodhouse Cinder Moor on the following dates (8am – 6pm). This will be manned by Security staff from 8am – 5pm.

● 4th – 8th June
● 11th, 12th, 14th June
● 18th – 22nd June

We hope that after the first 3 weeks, access to exit the Multi-Storey Car Park can be re-routed under the Physics Deck, although this is subject to the contractor works. We will inform Permit holders when this route becomes available to use.  The Estates Service have also arranged for the traffic light sequencing on Calverley Street to be modified during this period to further improve traffic circulation. HGV deliveries will also be affected due to the weak bridge crossing the Inner Ring Road at Calverley St / Willow Terrace Road, which has a weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes.
