Partial closure of Upper Maudlin Street and Marlborough Street to allow crane access
Two lanes of Upper Maudlin Street and
Marlborough Street will be closed to traffic this weekend (22 and
23 November) to allow access for a crane. The remaining lane will
allow traffic to pass eastbound (toward St James' Barton
roundabout), with westbound traffic being diverted via Earl Street,
Whitson Street and Lower Maudlin Street. Some delays should be
expected. The traffic management plan has been approved by the
The crane will be lifting structural
components into place in the Bristol Royal Infirmary's King Edward
Building, as part of University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation
Trust's ongoing redevelopment programme. The work being carried out
will greatly improve the hospital environment for patients and
allow the Trust to change the way it delivers care to its patients,
ensuring an even better patient experience.
Deborah Lee, Deputy Chief Executive, University Hospitals
Bristol NHS Foundation Trust said: "We realise that some drivers
will find these changes inconvenient and I'm sorry for that, but
sadly these disruptions are unavoidable if we are to achieve our
vision for our hospitals."
There will be further lane closures, with similar traffic
restrictions, on the weekend of 6 and 7 December.
