  • September 14th: It is announced on the University home page, and in more detail at a subsidiary page that the current roadworks on the approach to the University from Coventry will be completed only on Friday evening (one week after originally planned). The closure of the westerly end of Gibbet Hill Road will seriously increase the difficulty in travelling between Coventry and the campus on both Thursday and Friday. In particular, the published No 12 bus timetable bears little relation to the actual times at which buses appear.
  • Participants are urged to allow themselves ample time to complete the inward & outward journeys.

  • On Thurday and Friday evenings and on Friday and Saturday mornings a hired bus will be able to ferry about 50 participants from Coventry to the University campus and back again. Details of pick-up and set-down points will be provided at Registration. Those who will be driving to & from the campus each morning or evening could do us all a great service if they could make empty seats in their cars available to others who wish to travel.
