October 2016

Temporary closure of Oxford Road, 22-31 October

(20 October 2016)

To enable further resurfacing to take place, Oxford Road will close in both directions between Hathersage Road and Booth Street from Saturday, 22 October until late on Sunday, 30 October or early on Monday, 31 October. 

As well as enabling work to be done safely and efficiently, the full closure will allow work to proceed in a number of locations at once, to maximise use of the closure. This will include works at the junctions of Nelson Street, Grafton Street and Dover Street. Localised pedestrian management on the footway will be in place and full access to all premises by foot will be maintained throughout. 

Also, from yesterday, Wednesday, 19 October, access to Brunswick Street from Upper Brook Street will be closed to enable the continued development of the Schuster Building. This closure will be maintained for the duration of the Schuster Building works (at least 12 months). Signage will be provided along Upper Brook Street to notify motorists. Diversion routes will be put in place to enable pedestrians and cyclists to access Brunswick Street.
