Temporary Closure of Vernon Road: 5, 12 and 13 January and 4 February

Our contractor will be de-mobilising the Nexus construction site in January and needs to close Vernon Road to remove site cabins and containers.

The contractor will still have a small presence on site to complete the landscaping and this will require some cabins, albeit on a smaller scale, which means a road closure will take place on 5 January 2019. These cabins are provisionally planned to be removed finally from site on the 2 February 2019.

The work means there will be no access to the Multi-Storey car park from Woodhouse Lane.

 

 

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