Science car park (P1)

The ongoing works to the gas main at the west end of the Science car park (P1) will recommence on Saturday 24 November, resulting in the temporary closure of around 20 parking spaces. The work is expected to continue for approximately six weeks.

Park Village car park (P8)

The central bank of spaces in Park Village car park (P8) remain closed for works to improve the pedestrian route in that area. Once the work is completed, 16 spaces will be re-instated. Car park P8 is currently open for drivers to use the spaces available around the periphery.

Other works

Bus services along Refectory Road

Refectory Road has now re-opened to the 23 and 50U buses that service Northfield residences. The 23 runs two services per hour on average, beginning at 6.53am and continuing until after midnight. The 50U also runs around two services per hour from 9.00am until 6.59pm. Number 25/25X buses will not be included at this time, but will continue to serve the existing route on campus.

A27 lighting renewal scheme

Work is underway to replace the street lighting along the A27 between Coldean interchange and east of Falmer footbridge. Contractors (on behalf of Highways England) are conducting the works during the night, between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Fridays only.

The replacement programme, which will affect both the east- and westbound stretch of road, will continue until May 2019. The works will require overnight lane closures, which will be clearly signposted in advance of and during the work.

Vehicle access will be unaffected during the daytime, and at weekends, and night buses will continue to run as normal throughout the works. Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times.
