  , , ,

📥  Travel Update, Uncategorized

As from 10.00pm on Tuesday 6 December vehicles travelling along the underdeck from East to West will have a slight diversion in order to exit the underdeck.

The area which will be cordoned off for repair works will impact on the motorcycle parking next to the electric charger sockets (left photo below), which will be suspended for the duration of the works. Due to the diversion route the motorcycle parking area (right photo below) will also be suspended.

There is temporary parking for motorcycles opposite the west doors to 4ES.

Open Day traffic advice for Saturday 12 September

  , , ,

📥  Car parking on campus, Road closures

The university is having an Open Day on Saturday 12 September, and we have the following advice relating to traffic on the day:

  • The city of Bath and roads surrounding the University get very busy, we suggest you add an extra hour to your travel time on Saturday to allow for this.
  • Midford Road is closed due to bridge maintenance work near Old Midford Road. There is a diversion in place via the A36 and local routes.
  • Also on Saturday is a special race event at Bath Race course, which is close to the Lansdown Park and Ride that services Open Day. Please be aware this may cause extra traffic in the area.
  • Parking on the day is free, but and car parks will be very busy so we would suggest making use of the Park & Ride buses available.
