The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has released details of the latest developments in the second phase of its Masterplan highways improvements scheme.
Works will be carried out by UCLan’s contract partner, Balfour Beatty, 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.
The highways scheme will complement the University’s circa £60 million Student Centre and new civic square, a key part of its £200 million Campus Masterplan.
Michael Ahern, UCLan’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “We’d again like to thank everyone for their continued patience as we progress these essential highways works as part of our transformational Masterplan.
“As always we would remind road users to allow a little extra time for their journeys at peak times, particularly as we prepare for the return of our students and those from schools and colleges in the area for the new academic year following the summer break.”
