The University of Central Lancashire wants to know what they think of its Adelphi Square programme, which on Thursday saw the first stage – a major new engineering building approved.
A workshop is to present cyclists with outline design plans for the street scene at the new look Adelphi roundabout.
A spokesman for the University said: “A core principle of our Masterplan is to integrate our campus seamlessly with the rest of the city, and these consultations are key to creating a campus which is safe and accessible for all.
“This workshop is intended to help us improve the cycle network resulting in better connectivity to the city centre and cycle travel across campus. This will not only benefit those who cycle already, but also offer an attractive alternative for those who usually travel by car.”

The workshop for cyclists is to take place on Thursday 23 June from 6.30pm in room 011 of the Vernon building in Vernon Street.
