Silk Street Enhancement Works
From Tuesday 7–Friday 10 April, the final stages of the Silk Street enhancement works will be initiated as the carriageway by the entrance to the Barbican and Guildhall School of Music & Drama receives anti-skid treatment. This will involve some local diversions and road closures. Access to the Barbican will be maintained at all times for vehicles and closed roads are expected to open in the evenings.
Traffic will be required to enter and exit Silk Street via Milton Street until Wednesday 8 April. On Thursday 9–Friday 10 April, traffic will be required to enter and exit Silk Street via Beech Street.
