Views are being sought on proposed improvements to a key area of central Middlesbrough.

As part of a plan to develop the campus at Teesside University, initial proposals for the potential closure of the town’s Southfield Road were approved in 2011.

Middlesbrough Council now want to hear from members of the public and local groups regarding their thoughts on the potential options for the closure.

Options include no closure, daytime closure between 8.30am and 5.30pm, daytime closure between 8.30am and 5.30pm and one-way traffic, permanent full closure or weekday closure.

A public consultation will run until Monday March 11. Visit to have a say on the proposals. General queries can be emailed to
