The University is installing a new, more pedestrian-focussed surface on Salisbury Road.

The road will therefore be closed until further notice. It will still be possible to cross Salisbury Road on foot during this time.

Visitors wishing to access parking behind the Turner Sims can still do so via Hawthorn Road (off A3035, Highfield Lane), turning left onto Chamberlain Road and following the road round. The North Gower Car Park (next to Costa Coffee) is also still available to members of the public after 5pm and at weekends.
