Temporary Closure of Vernon Road

23 October to 4 December

Essential work will take place on Vernon Road to extend the district heating main to the new Nexus building.

This work is part of the two-year, £38m investment scheme to construct Nexus; our new, sector-leading innovation and enterprise centre.

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

  • Travelling from the north of the city will involve taking a slightly longer route, as access will be diverted via Calverley Street and the Willow Terrace Road entrance, over the Inner Ring Road bridge.
  • From 4pm each day, an alternative route, underneath Physics deck, will be opened to allow traffic to exit north via Woodhouse Lane.
  • Pedestrian access will remain open throughout the works.
  • HGV deliveries will also be affected due to the weak bridge crossing the Inner Ring Road at Calverley Street / Willow Terrace Road, which has a weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes.
