Public Realm Works - Bridgeford Street

12 Oct 2007

Temporary access/egress restriction at Higher Cambridge Street end

The Capital Projects Unit would like to advise of a temporary access/egress restriction to the Bridgeford Street/Higher Cambridge Street area of campus.

Works to the Public Realm project are currently progressing around campus and in order to move safely into the next area of works, it will be necessary to put some temporary access/egress restrictions into place.

The contractor is currently progressing works to the Higher Cambridge Street end of Bridgeford Street, in front of the Dental Hospital entrance. To facilitate these works and in the interests of Health & Safety for staff, students, visitors, the general public and patients, the contractor will erect security fencing to enclose his work areas. Works in this area are scheduled to last for a period of approximately three months. Emergency escape routes from all affected buildings in this area will be maintained and directional signage for both pedestrian and vehicular movement will reflect the current status.

It should be noted that from Monday 22 October 2007, vehicular access to this area of campus will generally be via Booth Street West and egress onto Higher Cambridge Street will be from Coupland Street.

The Capital Projects Unit would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any short term inconvenience this may cause and would request that directional signs and Health & Safety guidance provided by the contractor is strictly adhered to at all times.
