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.
