Pedestrians and drivers asked to take care on Refectory Road

Pedestrians and drivers are asked to take especial care along Refectory Road during roadworks that will continue for the next two months.

Infrastructure works started this week on Refectory Road as part of the development of the new East Slope student residences.

Until these works have been completed in early December, cars and other motor vehicles will have only single-lane access along Refectory Road, where local traffic management is in place.

This includes drivers who use the three car parks in the north of campus: Park Village (P8), Lewes Court (P9) and East Slope (P10).

The works will also include the pavements on Refectory Road and works on the road towards Lancaster House.

As a result, there are some alterations to pedestrian routes: students walking between their hall of residence and the rest of campus are asked to use the pedestrian footpath that runs through the centre of campus. All diversions during this time will be clearly signposted.

James Brown, Transport Manager in Sussex Estates and Facilities (SEF), says: “Please be patient and look out for other road users - both for their safety and to keep yourself safe.”

Keith Baldock, Road Safety Officer for Brighton and Hove City Council, adds: "Our lives are busy and we have a lot to distract us. But we must all respect the roads as the most dangerous environment we’ll be in each day and fully engage our senses, being aware that others make mistakes as well as us. Focus, Look, Listen is the key message."
