Gibbet Hill Road Closure - Phase 2a

Transco are currently three weeks ahead of schedule. Phase 2a began on Tuesday 26 February.

Phase 2a - Tuesday 26 February - Sunday 9 March (approx)

During this period, Gibbet Hill Road will be closed between the Gatehouse Roundabout and Library Road.

The Gatehouse roundabout will be unaffected on weekdays, but work will take place on the weekend of 1-2 March. Access will be controlled by traffic lights whilst this work takes place.

Approaching campus from the A45 Fletchamstead Highway/Kirby Corner Road

Car users will be able to gain access to the campus as usual at the Gatehouse Roundabout. The entrance at Lynchgate Road (by the Claycroft residences) will remain open for University members to ease congestion on other local roads. This access point will be open between 8am-12pm for incoming traffic and 2pm–7pm for outgoing traffic. There will be no access for vehicles between 12pm-2pm. This route will only be available to University members and will be supervised by a member of staff at all times.

Alternatively, cars will be diverted along the public highways. These diversions will be clearly signposted.

Changes to Bus routes Approaching from a45/Kirby Corner Road

Travel Coventry Service 12 (Coventry–University of Warwick–Leamington Spa) will operate it's normal line of route towardds Leamington, entering campus at the Gatehouse and exiting onto Gibbet Hill Road at the back of Warwick Arts Centre.

Service 801 (University of Warwick–University Hospital) will operate to it's normal route in both directions. It will terminate at the University and then turn around at the Cryfield roundabout to re-enter the University and exit at the Gatehouse roundabout. This service's route and times will no longer be affected by the Gibbet Hill Road works.

We are awaiting information from other bus operators and will post it here as soon as we have it.

Approaching campus from the A46/Kenilworth Road/Gibbet Hill

The one-way exit at the back of Warwick Arts Centre will be open both ways for car users to gain access to central campus.

Note that you will therefore be able to gain access to Kirby Corner Road, University House and Westwood Campus however, we recommend that you continue to follow the diversions on the main highways (A45/Kirby Corner Road) to reduce the volume of traffic on central campus.

Information on bus routes and diversions during Phase 2a will be posted as soon as we have confirmation from the bus operators.

Changes to Bus routes Approaching from Kenilworth Road/Gibbet Hill

Travel Coventry Service 12 (Leamington – University of Warwick – Coventry) will operate it's normal route but will travel through the main campus (University Road) in the opposite direction to normal. It will enter at Warwick Arts Centre (by car park 4a) and exit at the gatehouse roundabout. There will be 2 temporary bus stops opposite, as near as possible, to the permanent stops. Service 12 will operate to the temporary timetable for the week ending 1st March. Information about timetables beyond 1 March to follow.

Service 801 (University of Warwick–University Hospital) will operate to it's normal route in both directions. It will terminate at the University and then turn around at the Cryfield roundabout to re-enter the University and exit at the Gatehouse roundabout. This service's route and times will no longer be affected by the Gibbet Hill Road works.

All road users should be aware that there will be increased traffic on the roads during this period caused by the diversions.

Information on the next phases of the project will be released in due course.
