Chancellor's Drive roadworks

Starting Monday 21 October a programme of essential infrastructure works will begin on Chancellor's Drive.

This will involve significant trenching works along Chancellor's Drive which will last until approximately late April 2020.

The width of the multi-service trenching, which involves the installation of new drainage systems and additional connections to heating and electricity services, will mean the closure of a single carriageway on Chancellor's Drive.

To ensure minimal disruption, works will be undertaken in a phased approach to keep Chancellor's Drive open.

Traffic management will be in place to control vehicle movements along Chancellor's Drive.

This work will be carried out by contractor RG Carter on behalf of the Estates and Facilities Division.

Phase 1

This phase comprises trenching works to the Boiler House roof of the Estates building and to the pathway behind the Security Lodge. This phase will also involve trenching on the University Drive pathway behind the Security Lodge opposite the Sportspark.

There will be further trenching works to the pedestrian footpath from the Chancellors Drive/Security Lodge zebra crossing towards the Registry building. Due to the need to ‘break out’ the existing sub base of the path we expect some noise disruption.

A two-way traffic light system will be in place on Chancellors Drive for this phase. Pedestrians will be routed via the pathway between Cow Drive and the Registry at the edge of the Main Car Park. There will be no access to the cycle parking behind the Security Lodge.

National Express bus services will continue to pick up on Chancellor's Drive and First Bus services will also continue to service both University Drive and Chancellors Drive.

Phase 2

This phase comprises further trenching works to the area behind the Security Lodge. This involves maintenance to essential services and the installation of a new water meter. There will be no access to the cycle parking behind the Security Lodge.

Pedestrians will be routed via the pathway between Cow Drive and the Registry at the edge of the Main Car Park. There will be no access to the cycle parking behind the Security Lodge.

Once this phase is complete, the University Drive pathways behind the Security Lodge is anticipated to re-open. It is anticipated that this will allow Cow Drive to re-open.

National Express bus services will continue to pick up on Chancellor's Drive and First Bus services will also continue to service both University Drive and Chancellors Drive.
