Summer 2012 car park closures
This year the University is hosting a number of events and conferences, requiring coach and car parking. In addition, there will be major maintenance work and some new building developments taking place. Inevitably due to these events and general works, some car parks will need to be closed or partially closed for periods during the summer. Please refer to the list below for details;
- Giles Lane Blue Zone (bottom third) closed from 15th June until 12th September, in order to provide parking throughout the conference period.
- Blean car park closed between the following dates; 20th - 22nd June, 29th June - 1st July and 11th July - 11th September.
- Sports Centre Blue Zone closed from 25th June until January 2013. Once re-opened 50 bays will be available, if the University receive temporary planning.
- Sports Centre Pink Zone is now closed, for the Open Day and Sports Centre Extension works. This car park will not re-open.
- Grimond car park closed until September.
- Gulbenkian car park closed until September, whilst Colyer Fergusson building works continue.
- Rutherford car park 13 bays closed (115 remaining) until 30th September.
- Keynes car park partially closed whilst water main replacements works progress.
Please ensure you use alternative car parks on these days.
In order to manage parking safely and effectively, Kent Hospitality and Estates have agreed a suitable Traffic Management Plan. Unfortunately, during this busy period you may not be able to park in your usual car park, but please be assured that to date there have always been parking spaces available on the campus. These can often be found in non central campus parking areas such as KRDC, KBS and Park Wood.
The Traffic Regulations continue to apply so please ensure you park in allocated spaces rather than on grass verges, yellow lines or undesignated bays. All accessible bays will remain open as usual.
If you would like to provide feedback, please visit https://www.kent.ac.uk/estates/transport/feedback.php and we will direct it to the people managing the events.
