Information Commons and Hounsfield Road (Leavygreave Road west)



Much of this area will be pedestrianised to make it a more attractive and safer place for everyone who uses it. There will also be new cycle routes, more trees, and plants which will create a vibrant and greener setting.

Work updates

  • Work continues on Leavygreave Road West in front of the Information Commons - vehicles can no longer access Upper Hanover Street from this direction
  • Continuing to lay paving - the retaining wall at the side of the Information Commons (IC) has been dug out and the steps to the IC remain closed
  • Excavation work has been carried out at the side of the IC on Upper Hanover Street
  • You cannot turn left onto Favell Road from Western Bank as it is has been changed to a one-way system which you can access from Hounsfield Road
  • We continue to provide access to the Information Commons for all users via the car park at the side of the building
