Drivers using roads in and around Preston’s university campus are being warned about a series of closures.


Major roadworks are taking place on the Adelphi roundabout ahead of the building of the University of Central Lancashire’s new student centre.

10 weeks of roadworks are taking place on various roads to reroute ground utility services beneath the roundabout, the second stage of work.

The university is creating a new public square, called Adelphi Square, on the roundabout as well as its student centre in the £60million scheme.

What the university had to say

Chief operating officer Michael Ahern said: “We are now on track to complete the preparatory phase in the development of our student centre and new square and our plan has always been for this work to be carried out during the summer months, minimising disruption as much as possible.

“We’d encourage road users to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys during this period, particularly over the bank holiday weekend at the end of August. The teams are doing everything they can to ensure the work is completed as efficiently as possible with minimal inconvenience.”
