The map below outlines the new 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.
Phase 1 – Road Closures / Diversions
Maudland Road will be closed from the week commencing June 3 for a two-year period, to accommodate a compound for Balfour Beatty which has been selected as the principal contractor to deliver the highways scheme.
In addition, works to the Adelphi roundabout will take place from June 10 to facilitate new traffic diversions, that will be in place for a two-year period until completion of the scheme.
Phase 2 – Road Closures / Diversions
Road closures continue to include Maudland Bank but now incorporate Kendal Street and a section of the road on Corporation Street adjacent to the Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC).
New diversions are in place on Corporation Street, from Marsh Lane toward the University becoming one way. Friargate will continue to operate with two-way traffic and Hope Street is to now become a two-way highway.
Works will be carried out to make Harrington Street two-way resulting in the closure of the road from September 9 for approximately six weeks. It will remain access only during this period.
The closure coincides with the reopening of Victoria Street on September 6 which has been shut since June to allow the road to be widened. Traffic will be diverted down Victoria Street, Adelphi Street, St Peter’s Street and Moor Lane while Harrington Street is closed.
When the project is complete, Adelphi Street, from its junctions with St Peter’s Street to Victoria Street, will become pedestrianised.
