Clarendon Way closure

The road closure along Clarendon Way is to continue until July 2017. Check what this means for staff and students.

The closure is to allow for new high voltage cables to be laid from the new 33kV sub station on Hyde Street to the Generating Station Complex.

This work is part of the two-year scheme to reinforce the University campus power supply and upgrade the Generating Station Complex. The investment of £27m will not only significantly boost the resilience and security of present campus operations, but will provide the necessary infrastructure to support the University's £520m campus masterplan and future developments.

The closure is expected to continue until 3 July 2017.

For staff, students and visitors this will mean:

  • there will be no access for vehicles along this rout
  • pedestrian access to the buildings along Clarendon Way will remain open
  • vehicles will not be able to access parking to the Orange Zone car parks via Clarendon Way. The alternative access route to the car parks is via Calverley Street.

 For delivery vehicles this will mean:

  • access for deliveries and refuse removal vehicles will remain open. The best access route is via Hyde Street on to Clarendon Way.

As a result of this road closure there have been changes made to the bus service in this area. More information can be found on the West Yorkshire Metro website.

Thank you for your cooperation and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.  

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact Simon Gough  or the Estates Helpdesk on 35491.
