The map below outlines the final road layout, which will complement the University’s circa £60 million Student Centre and new civic square, a key part of UCLan’s transformational £200 million Campus Masterplan.

Scheduled to be completed by summer 2021, highways enabling works are now taking place on site for the second phase of the highways scheme, resulting in a number of road closures and diversions.  

Full pedestrian access will be available throughout all phases of the highways works, but cyclists will be asked to dismount and use pedestrian routes until completion of the project. When the project is complete, Adelphi Street, from its junctions with St Peter’s Street to Victoria Street, will become pedestrianised.

Completed road layout

Phase 3 – Current Road Closures

The next nine-month phase started the week beginning 25 November when a new, two-way stretch of highway opened, directly linking Fylde Road with Corporation Street.

Adelphi Street is closed temporarily from the Adelphi Roundabout to St Peter’s Street.  Newly constructed parking bays on St Peter’s Street will allow access for customers using Adelphi Street businesses, all of which will remain open during these works.

Adelphi roundabout: 25 November 2019 – August 2020

Friargate is also closed at its junction with Hope Street but access to businesses for deliveries will be maintained through a two-way loop on Friargate (see map). Maudland Road and Kendal Street continue to be closed, to accommodate a compound for the contractor, Balfour Beatty.

For other motorists, all roads will remain open as normal unless otherwise stated.

Friargate access: 6 December 2019 – August 2020

At the same time traffic restrictions will also be in place on Moor Lane and Walker Street. While vehicle access for residents and businesses in Moor Lane and Walker Street will remain open, there will be no access from these routes through the Adelphi Roundabout.

Alternative routes will be available around the Adelphi roundabout for cyclists, pedestrians and residents wanting to access Adelphi Street, Friargate, Moor Lane and Walker Street. Where relevant, cyclists should dismount and follow pedestrian routes.  All businesses on all affected roads will remain open as usual with full pedestrian access available.

The University would like to remind motorists that at weekends UCLan car parks are available and free for general public use.
