Immediate closure of Lakeside Way

Posted on 6 June 2019

Due to the recent excessive weather conditions, there has been further deterioration of the condition of Lakeside Way on Campus East.

Following health and safety advice from road Engineers, we have taken the decision to close Lakeside Way with effect from Thursday 6 June 2019, whilst we identify how long the emergency repairs will take.

This will prevent all pedestrian and cycle access to the road and impact the relevant bus services. Notices will be placed on bus stops along the route requesting passengers use the interchange at Kimberlow Lane for alighting and catching the buses.

  • Buses will be rerouted along Field Lane via the Interchange and Kimberlow Lane to the Sport Village. The Sport Village bus stop will still operate but all other bus stops along Lakeside Way will be closed.
  • It will still be possible to use the accessible parking bays off Lakeside Way by Computer Science but access will only be permitted from the Sport Village end of Lakeside Way.

Please accept our apologies for the short notice of this closure and for the inconvenience caused.
