Woodstock road improvement works 2

Woodstock Road works start on Monday 25 June 2018.

The roadworks will last approximately 11 weeks finishing on 15 September 2018.  This will create a boulevard frontage for the ROQ site while converting the Woodstock road on a permanent 20mph zone.

During the first week, commencing the  Monday 25 June 2018, work will be undertaken to restore water to the fountain in the courtyard. ROQ facilities apologises in advance for any disturbance this may generate and will aim to keep noise to a minimum.

Access to the site from the Woodstock Road will be affected for the duration of the works:

  • Gate 1 - this is the gate behind Radcliffe Primary Cares Sciences. It will close from Monday 25 June, followed by all other gates up to gate 5 which is the one outside the car lifts.
  • Gate 3 – this is the gate by the Triton fountain. It will be closed off for the duration of the works. Signage will be in place if anything changes.

Alternative Access

  • Gate 5 - this is located between St Luke’s Chapel and the Maths building (Andrew Wiles building) Pedestrians and Cyclists will be able to access RPC via this gate. This gate offers the more direct access to RPC as it is only a short walk behind St Luke’s Chapel. (see map below)
  • Gate 7 - Main vehicle gate located next to GTC. Please note that people directed via Gate 7 may end up walking a big loop to get to RPC if the Maths building is closed. The Maths building opens from 8:00am until 6:00pm Monday thru Friday. The main vehicle gate will close during lunchtime on 5 and 6 September only. As an advance warning, most deliveries are suspended during this time. If the delivery is urgent special arrangements can be made. Please call facilities helpdesk on 01865 270087 to advise of your urgent request and ROQ Facilities will come back to you.
