Prestonians are being asked for their views on how the university’s plan for the Adelphi roundabout affects them.


A £200m masterplan for the Adelphi Square area is being worked on.

It involves changing how the current roundabout operates, with a new public square taking up some of the space.

The University of Central Lancashire is going to explaining its proposals for the road network and pathways around the current roundabout.

Chief operating officer at UCLan Michael Ahern said: “Working in partnership with Lancashire County Council, the highway and public pathway design proposals are being informed by the key principles and lessons learnt from the city centre Fishergate scheme.

“The views of local residents and businesses are vitally important to the University because we need to ensure our design proposals work for everyone whatever mode of transport they choose.

“Feedback we’ve received so far from community groups such cyclists and the visually impaired has been invaluable and is being used to help shape our plans during this early yet very important stage.”
