Vernon Road Closure – alternative route and parking option

Staff are reminded there will be no access to the multi-storey car park from Woodhouse Lane between Monday 4 June and Friday 6 July 2018.

Vernon Road closure June - July 2018

Access will only be possible during this time via Calverley Street and Willow Terrace Road, over the inner ring road bridge.

As an alternative, the Estates Service has acquired space at Woodhouse Moor (often known as Hyde Park) for Orange Zone Permit holders to park in Woodhouse Cinder Moor on the following dates (from 8am to 6pm):

  • 4-8 June
  • 11, 12 and 14 June
  • 18-22 June

The Estates Service has also arranged for the traffic light sequencing in Calverley Street to be modified during this period to further improve traffic circulation.

It is hoped that after the first three weeks, access to exit the multi-storey car park can be re-routed under the Physics Deck, although this is subject to contractor works. Permit holders will be informed when this route becomes available to use.

This disruption is as a result of essential works taking place in Vernon Road as part of the two-year, £38m investment scheme to construct Nexus, the new innovation centre.

See the Campus Developments website for further information, as well as a more detailed map of the disruption and alternative parking. Alternatively, contact the Estates Helpdesk on 0113 343 5491 for more details.

Visit the Campus Developments website or email Paul Cook (Nexus Project Manager) for further information about the Nexus project.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as these essential works are progressed.
