Construction work near Health Centre/UCSA site

Construction work on a new sub-station is under way near the Health Centre/UCSA site. The sub-station will service buildings in the area.

Temporary fencing is in place around the work site. Two car parks will be unavailable during the work to allow construction vehicle access.

Please follow any detours and signage in place around the work area. Take care when travelling through the area and look out for others.

Kia mataara. Think first.

UCSA building site update – April

Early enabling works and ground improvements are continuing on the UCSA building site.

During April and May a large excavator will be carrying out earthworks and stabilising the ground. Large machinery will also be on site compacting gravel.

Noise levels are likely to increase – as well as general construction noise, there will be heavy compaction of gravel and truck movements.

Please take care when travelling near the site – watch for construction vehicles coming and going.

Note – The footbridge located between the UCSA site and University Drive (opposite the University Bookshop) will remain closed until the end of May. Please continue to use the two footbridges located between the Health Centre and University Drive (opposite the ICT car park). See more information

All early enabling works and ground improvements are expected to be completed by June.

If you have any concerns please contact David Wong, UCSA Project Manager – email david.wong@canterbury.ac.nz

Campus construction sites – Think first

With four large construction sites on campus (CETF, NEB, RSIC and UCSA) you might have noticed things are super busy around here.

When you’re near a building site on campus watch out for trucks and other construction vehicles coming and going from the site – take extra care when near site gates.

If traffic management staff or detour signage is in place, please follow instructions. This applies to everyone – drivers, cyclists, skateboarders and pedestrians.

Keep outside construction sites and fencing, stay alert and slow down – you never know what’s around the corner…
