Bus passengers to use bus stop on North-South Road

The bus stop on Boiler House Hill will be closed for safety reasons until January 2018.

The bus stop at the bottom of Boiler House Hill is to be closed for a trial period to improve safety for bus passengers and other pedestrians at this busy junction.

Sue Carter, Direct of Health and Safety, says: “The safety of our students, staff and visitors is of utmost importance to us.

“We want to do all that we can to prevent any possible accidents during a period of major campus development. That’s why we’ve decided to suspend the Boiler House Hill bus stop as a temporary measure.

“This safety measure means that both bus stops on Boiler House Hill will be out of use until January 2018, when we will review the situation.”

From Monday (4 October), signs will point bus passengers to the nearest alternative bus stop, which is very close by on North-South Road. This bus stop will be extended so that it can accommodate increased numbers of passengers getting on and off the buses.

The bus stop in Refectory Road by the junction with Norwich House Road may be impacted by roadworks in Refectory Road until early December. The bendy bus will continue to operate daily from 8pm to 4.30am from the Lewes Court bus stop for evening services to Brighton.

Other bus stops on campus are at University Way (between the Sport Centre and the Attenborough Centre; Southern Ring Road (outside Sussex House); Eastern Ring Road (near the Falmer Sports Complex); and Knights Gate Road (near Mill Street).

There is also a bus stop outside Falmer railway station, on the A27.
