University Road Closed outside IMC

Sat 30 August - Saturday 6 September

This work was originally scheduled for Tues 26 August - Friday 29 August but has been rescheduled.

From Saturday 30 August until Saturday 6 September, University Road will be closed outside the International Manufacturing Centre (IMC), International Automotive Research Centre (IARC) and Engineering whilst work is undertaken to repair the footbridge connecting the two buildings.

By Car
During the works, those wishing to access carparks 9, 10, 11 and 15 should enter central campus by the Gatehouse entrance.

Those wishing to access carparks 6, 7, 8 and 8a should enter central campus by the Lynchgate Road entrance (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.

Alternatively, for carparks 6, 7, 8 and 8a, it will be possible to enter campus at the back of the Arts Centre which is two-way for this period.

By Bus
During this period, buses will enter the campus at the back of the Arts Centre, they will go anti-clockwise around campus and then turn left onto Library Road and use the temporary bus stops located at the top of the road, opposite the Ramphal Building.

On Foot
Pedestrians will not be able to pass under the IMC bridge during this period. Please follow the pedestrian signs.

Those wishing to access the IARC building will need to do so via the IARC car park side entrance and the rear entrance. Signage will guide you.

Those coming from Westwood campus or University House onto central campus will need to walk by carpark 15 and along the footpath between IMC and Computer Science. This will then bring them out in front of IMC and back onto University Road. Alternatively, they will need to walk across carparks 9 and 10, in front of Physics, onto Social Studies and onto the top end of Library Road.

During this period, Gibbet Hill Road will also be closed for Phase 4 of the roadworks to replace a gas main. Gibbet Hill Road will be closed from Car Park 2 roundabout to the University Road exit at the back of the Arts Centre.

All details of diversions during this period will be available on the Gibbet Hill Road webpages as we receive information from bus operators and Coventry City Council.
