Large sections of Bigforth Drive require essential maintenance; to enable the works to be carried out safely the road will be closed between Monday 24th and Monday 31st of August.

The closure will stretch from the A6 traffic lights to the roundabout at the top of the main drive. A diversion will be in place throughout the works and will be clearly signposted along the A6 and on to Alexandra Park on South West Campus.

Pedestrian access to the Sports Centre will be maintained with parking available on car park K, accessed via Green Lane. The main Sports Centre car park will be closed throughout the works.

Bus routes will be diverted via South West Campus which may impact on timetables. Please ensure you check the departures information directly from the stagecoach website if you require their service during this time.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact the Facilities Helpdesk on 01524593333 or email
