Partial closure of Upper Maudlin Street and Marlborough Street
Two lanes of Upper Maudlin Street and Marlborough Street will be
closed to traffic this weekend (6 and 7 December) to allow access
for a crane. The remaining lane will be under traffic light
control, allowing traffic to pass in both directions, however some
delays should be expected. The traffic management plan has been
approved by the Highways Agency.
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 by the Estates
Capital Team 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."
During these works, the front entrance to the King Edward
Building will be inaccessible for safety reasons. Alternative
access will be via the underpass from the Old Building or Queens
Level 2 through the Balloon Corridor.
