Weekly transport updates

16 November 2023

Refectory Road is now closed

East Slope Road is now open, while Refectory Road is closed (at one end, by the Student Centre) and is now access only. Refectory Road will be closed until Spring 2024 to undertake essential preparation works for the West Slope development.

This means that to access Northfield and Lewes Court, drivers now need to use East Slope Road. Limited vehicle access to Refectory Road is in place, to manage traffic in this busy area. Signage will be present to indicate these road changes.

The Bramber House bus stop will also be closed during this period, and the East Slope Road bus stop has reopened.

See full information.

Changes to train services from December

From Sunday 10 December, new Southern Rail train timetables will be implemented which will affect train services in the region.

This will include additional service stops at Preston Park, Hassocks, Berwick and Glynde.

See more information via Southern Rail.

Work is ongoing to install communications ducting as part of our Network Replacement Programme.

The Science Park Road bus stop (by Pavilion Road, up to the Falmer Sports Complex) has now reopened for use.
