Think first on Homestead Lane

If you use Homestead Lane, you might have noticed a new construction project. This is to build a new student residential hall, scheduled to open in 2021.

This means Homestead Lane will be busy and may be restricted to one lane or closed to two-way traffic at times. The Orbiter bus route changed in January and you need to walk down Homestead Lane or cross Ilam fields to catch the bus from Waimairi Road.

It’s important to follow signage on Homestead Lane, use open footpaths and avoid restricted or closed areas. Think first, look after yourself and if you see a hazard, report it to Security by calling 0800 823 637.

Concrete cutting near Puaka-James Hight

There will be concrete cutting work outside Puaka-James Hight (near the bike stands on the south side of the building) starting on Thursday 1 February. This work is to connect underground services.

The work will take approximately two to three working days, and is expected to generate noise and some dust. Measures will be in place on site to help mitigate this.

Apologies for any inconvenience. Please take care if you’re near the work site. 

Road closed near Puaka-James Hight – Thurs 25 Jan

The road that runs from University Drive to Puaka-James Hight will be closed for the day on Thursday 25 January between the University Bookshop and Puaka-James Hight (see image below). This is due to excavation and trenching work being carried out.

There will be no entry to the accessible car parks outside the south-east end of Puaka-James Hight. Please use the accessible car parks outside the South Arts Lecture Theatre or Psychology building instead.

The University Bookshop car park will remain open.

Please follow traffic management in place and take care when near the work site.
