Chemistry Arch trenching works

Starting Monday 10 February, the installation of 2 data ducts to the campus will involve trenching from the Estates loading bay through the Chemistry Arch to the ITCS building.

These works are part of the programme of essential infrastructure works and can be identified in the below image as Phase 6.

During the works, access will be maintained to the adjacent Chemistry loading bay (including accessible parking bay) and BMRC access road. 

However there will be a two-way traffic light system under the Chemistry Arch from Wednesday 19 February. This will remain for the duration of works.

Trenching works are likely cause heavy noise disruption to buildings in close proximity. 

National Express bus services will continue to pick up on Chancellor's Drive and First Bus services will also continue to service both University Drive and Chancellors Drive.

Works are expected to complete Monday 2 March.
