Home>Investing in our campus>Disruption notices

We try really hard to minimise the level of disruption that may occur when expanding and renewing our campus, but sometimes, for example, we have to close specific areas or divert footpaths to carry out necessary work safely, and as quickly as possible.  

Keep up-to-date with current works so you can better plan your journey to, from and around campus.

Urgent works on University Road: 22 January 2022 to 4 February 2023

  • There will be an excavation near Market Square as well as temporary two-way traffic lights and the relocation of the bus stops from the library closer to Harewood Way. This work may be completed by 4 February 2023.
