What's happening?

Stepnell construction will begin work on a new student accommodation block between Castle Boulevard and the canal. This will require the closure of the footpath, and construction vehicles will use the cycle lane to access the site.

How will this affect cyclists?

  • Vehicles will access the site via the cycle lane and travel a short distance along the lane to the site entrance gate.
  • When exiting the site, vehicles will travel along the cycle lane until they can re-join the road at the dropped kerb.
  • All vehicles will have hazard warning lights on at all times when travelling in the cycle lane.
  • In the event of larger delivery vehicles not being able to access the site they will use the cycle lane for unloading. This will only be carried out off peak (between the hours of 10am and 3pm) when there are fewer people using the lane. All loading from the cycle lane will be manually supervised.
