Gibbet Hill Road Closure - Phase 4

UPDATE: 11/09/08: The Gibbet Hill Road has now reopened and campus is accessible from both the A45 and A46. From the evening of Friday 12 September all roads are back to normal and the buses will revert back to the stops near to Rootes from Monday 15 September.

Phase 4: 26 August - 5 September (delayed until 12 September)

During this phase, Gibbet Hill Road will be closed between Car Park 2 Roundabout and Warwick Arts Centre (where University Road exits onto Gibbet Hill Road). All access to central campus will be via Kirby Corner Road and the Gatehouse (as in Phase 3).

Approaching campus from the A45 Fletchamstead Highway/Kirby Corner Road

Access from the A45 onto Central Campus will be as normal although traffic will be a lot heavier as all traffic will be diverted to enter campus via the Gatehouse.

Deliveries and services accessing Rootes, Social Studies and the rear of the Arts Centre should use the one-way access point at the back of the Arts Centre, onto Gibbet Hill Road which will be made two-way for this period. (There are additional roadworks taking place on University Road outside Costcutter during this period)

Alternatively, University members who want access to central campus will be able to use the entrance at Lynchgate Road (by the Claycroft residences). 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.

Vehicles travelling to Gibbet Hill campus will need to follow road diversions along the A45 and access via Kenilworth Road.

Changes to bus routes approaching from A45/Kirby Corner Road

Buses will follow the same diversion routes as for Phase 3 of the roadworks.

Stagecoach Service U1 will operate from Leamington via A46, A45 (Kenpas Highway, Fletchamstead Highway), Charter Avenue (return Sir Henry Parkes Road), Kirby Corner Road to University, and vice-versa. During this period, the service will use University Road and Library Road where temporary bus stops will be located.

Service U2 & 16 will operate direct from Crackley to Coventry via Kenilworth Road and will not serve the University.

Travel Coventry, service 12, will serve central campus and will enter at Gatehouse, travelling along University Road and turning right onto Library Road. Temporary bus stops will be located at the top of Library Road, opposite the Ramphal Building. Buses will then exit right at the top of Library Road and will return towards the Gatehouse.

(N.B. the Travel Coventry notice has a start date of 20 July - this refers to their summer timetable, not the Gibbet Hill diversion. The diversion will start on Monday 28 July.)

There will be no car parking on Library Road from 28 July – 25 August.

Approaching campus from the A46/Kenilworth Road/Gibbet Hill

Access to Gibbet Hill campus and Car Park 2 will be unaffected.

All traffic wishing to access central campus will need to follow road diversions along the A45 and Kirby Corner Road to enter via the Gatehouse.

Alternatively, University members who want access to central campus will be able to use the entrance at Lynchgate Road (by the Claycroft residences). 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.

On completion of Phase 4, some additional work will be required to make final connections to the gas main. Some of this work will take place at weekends. Details will be confirmed nearer the time.
