New Central Library and Museum - Works Update

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

The building has really been starting to take shape with the iconic central frontage of the former girls school being carefully restored so it becomes the focal point.
