New Central Library and Museum - Works Update

Work started on the new development in October 2018 and should be complete and open in summer 2020.

What has been happening?

Chamber Road from Waterdale to the entrance to Chamber Road Car Park will be closed during the works. The car park remains open and is accessible from College Road.

Works have continued on cladding the building with the glazing really starting to take shape.

The iconic central frontage will be retained and carefully restored so it becomes the focal point of the new library and museum.
