The work will take place between 9 and 20 August between 8pm and 6am.

A spokesperson for the University said: “We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this work may cause and thank everyone for their continued patience. 

“Along with our highways partner Balfour Beatty, we have planned for this resurfacing to take place overnight to minimise disruption and for it to be completed as quickly as possible.

“Clear diversion signage will be in place but we would ask drivers to allow a little more time to complete their journeys.”

The exact dates for the work are subject to change and are also weather dependent with the possibility the resurfacing could be extended into the following week, 22 to 27 August.
