Work on the new Bridge Deck at Junction 6 is now entering the final stages and is on target for the scheduled completion date of spring this year. In order to complete the work, contractors need to close one of the main pedestrian subway routes between the railway station and the city centre.
You will not be able to walk between the railway station and the city centre via the subways which run between Grosvenor Road and Warwick Road, or the footpath next to the contractor’s site offices and down towards Greyfriars Green and into Bull Yard.
An alternative route to and from the city centre to Central Six and Warwick Road is available via Westminster Road – as shown on the plan and pedestrians will also still be able to exit the front of the station and turn left to walk up Warwick Road.
It looks like it might be a bit tricky for disabled people wishing to travel via rail service. The pavements are uncertain and crossing from Central 6 not easy. It might be risky in the dark as well.
Suggestions are to take the bus or via taxis until mid May when the work is finished (hopefully).
