Car Park N – Partial Closure from 22 May onwards

17 May 2017 by

We will be carrying out roofing repair works to Edward Elgar this summer.  To make way for a contractor’s compound for these works, it will be necessary to close off some of the spaces in Car Park N – adjacent to the Geo Garden.  The area is highlighted in pink on the photo below.

The spaces will be closed off from Monday 22 May until the end of August.

We anticipate that the disabled spaces in this car park will remain accessible but if you are disabled/a blue badge holder and you encounter any difficulty, please email carparking@worc.ac.uk or telephone the main security control room on x5495 and they will be able to work with you to identify suitable alternative parking.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this closure and thank you for your patience while we carry out our summer works.
