Power cuts update

All of Salisbury has been affected by power cuts this morning which affected the college too. Our power is currently on and wifi and phone lines are working.

The college is open and lessons are running as normal.

Travel disruption

The A36, Southampton Road, is closed outbound (towards Southampton) due to emergency gas repairs, it is likely remain closed over the coming days according to local news.

There will be no access to Southampton Road from Tollgate Road to the Bourne Way Roundabout whilst the work is being carried out. Gas workers are working 24 hours a day to get this fixed as quickly as possible.

This means that there are disruptions to bus services causing delays on some routes which might affect students travelling home.

Traffic is also more congested across the city due to diversions causing delays getting to the college.
