The bridge deck is a key part of the Friargate development at the railway station and our move to new Council offices on the site. The bridge deck improve links between Friargate and the city centre by removing the raised roundabout and building a 100 metre wide bridge across the ring road, creating a new road layout and a public boulevard linking the railway station through Greyfriars Green directly into Bull Yard.
A new junction has been created on top of the new bridge deck to provide access on and off of the Ring Road via three new roads. The only movement that will NOT be provided for, is a right turn from Warwick Road onto the Ring Road towards Quinton Road.
Please note: Warwick Road, when travelling from New Union Street direction towards the new junction, will be for buses, taxis and cyclists only. All other vehicles will need to turn right into Greyfriars Road. This is monitored by an enforceable camera and any vehicles using this road, will be issued with a fine.
The work is being funded by grant investment from the Regional Growth Fund and European Regional Development Fund.
