Update on Friday 1 March
Our Estates team have today confirmed with the contractor that investigative work will begin on Monday 4 March. From Monday 4-Friday 8 March, they will be carrying out a camera survey which will require the closure of part of the footpath on the George Eliot side of the A30 from the island crossing to Harvest Road. At this stage there will not be any impact on the road traffic.
Please abide by the footpath closures and use the adjacent crossing points. The contractor has advised that they will minimise the impact of the work where possible and will be meeting with our Estates team towards the end of next week to advise of their work plan and impacts. We will continue to keep you updated throughout the course of the work in the staff newsletter and on the intranets.
Update on Monday 25 February
You may have seen signage indicating that gas main works on the A30 are due to start from Wednesday 6 March for an estimated 12 weeks. We are aware that this will have an impact on traffic levels, as well as potentially impacting a number of campus buildings and Halls of Residences.
Our Estates team are meeting with the contractor on Wednesday (27 February) to find out more information on the work, timeframes and exactly which buildings will be impacted and when. We will keep you updated throughout the course of the work in the staff newsletter and on the intranets.
