Completed improvement works

University of Warwick and surrounding area

All of the improvement works in the area were funded by the Department for Transport and the University of Warwick and will be undertaken in four phases from June 2014 until summer 2015. We worked with the University of Warwick on a number of improvements around the campus and on surrounding roads.


  • Reduce congestion
  • Improve journey time reliability
  • Help keep public transport to timetable
  • Improve routes and safety for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Improve the connections between both sides of the university campus which are split by Gibbet Hill Road
  • Improve the look of the area – creating nicer spaces and areas for people to use and enjoy 

This work involved:

  • Gibbet Hill Road/Central campus - New public area with high quality paving and landscaping. Also reduced speed limit
  • Gibbet Hill Road/University Road - Installing a new roundabout to allow a second entry point for traffic onto central campus
  • Gibbet Hill Road/University Road - Creating a new dedicated Bus Interchange to increase capacity and provide space for five buses at a time operating like a mini bus station in the central area of campus
  • Outside Warwick Arts Centre - Creation of a new public space with high quality materials and planting
  • Gibbet Hill Road/Kenilworth Road/Stoneleigh Road - Replacing traffic signals with a roundabout to improve traffic flow
  • Gibbet Hill Road at Gibbet Hill campus - Constructing a right turn lane into Gibbet Hill campus
  • Gibbet Hill Road/University Road/Scarman Road - Improvements to crossing points for pedestrians 
  • Gibbet Hill Road/Leighfield Road - Improvements to crossing points for pedestrians
  • Kenilworth Road / Gibbet Hill Road / Stoneleigh Road: new kerb-lines were installed on the North and East quadrants of the junction and on the South and West quadrants along with drainage works. Footway reconstruction and extra layers of road surfacing were laid. The central island was then constructed before new signal controlled crossings were switched on.
