Infrastructure Improvements project - Hollingside Lane to the Victor Watts Library

(26 June 2020)

As part of the £8m Infrastructure Improvements project to enhance movement around the University, works from Hollingside Lane to the Victor Watts Library will start Monday 29 June, with an expected duration of six weeks.

This part of the project will involve the construction of a new footpath from the Hollingside Lane/South Road junction running along Hollingside Lane to the front of Victor Watts Library; a new raised table section of road to the front of the Library; and a new combined kerb drainage system running the full length of Hollingside Lane.

Narrow lane and priority system closures will be required to allow access on to verge areas to construct the footpaths. Please follow signed diversions and a traffic marshal will be on site to guide you through the works where required.
