Construction work underway in the Science Area

Major construction works on Phase 2 of the Biochemistry building are underway at the Science Area. The area is tightly constrained and is also a busy route for students, staff, members of the public, contractors and suppliers.

In the coming months the work will add significantly to volumes of traffic in the Science Area, including heavy construction traffic. Managing this traffic safely will inevitably disrupt the flow of pedestrians, cycles and other vehicles; several roads are closed and diversions are in place.

Please take extra care in the Science Area at all times, and observe the warning signs, which are there for everyone’s safety. Allow extra time for your journey if you can. We also encourage cyclists to use the bike parking around the edge of the Science Area and walk from there. Extra cycle racks have been added along South Parks Road and Parks Road, and even more will be installed by the end of November.

The latest updates on developments around the Science Area relating to the construction can be found on special information pages on the Medical Sciences Division website; staff and students who use the area are encouraged to consult them regularly. Please contact projects@admin.ox.ac.uk with any questions or comments.
