Think first around Homestead Lane construction

UC has some fantastic new state-of-the-art buildings and facilities – make sure you check out Haere-roa if you haven’t already.

There is still construction happening around campus and surrounding areas like Homestead Lane so Think first and take care around construction sites. The new 500 bed student accommodation being built on Homestead Lane is well under way now. When moving around this busy area, watch out for trucks and other construction vehicles coming and going from the site – take extra care when near site gates.

Traffic management is in place on Homestead Lane, please follow instructions on signage which applies to everyone – drivers, cyclists, skateboarders and pedestrians. Also respect any barriers, fencing and hoardings in the Ilam Homestead gardens. These cordons are set up for your safety and the safety of those working on the construction site.

Homestead Lane around the construction site is under 24 hour camera surveillance and UC Security patrol. As a community we are all responsible for the health and safety of ourselves and those around us – check out the Code of Conduct, and if you see any hazards please contact UC Security and report it.

Think first. Kia Mataara.
