Homestead Lane – bus route change

New student accommodation coming
Next year UC will start on a construction project on Homestead Lane to build a new student residential hall, which is due to open in 2021. The new 500-bed hall of residence will be opposite Ilam Apartments and groundworks are due to start in early 2019.

Homestead Lane is a narrow private road on UC property and traffic restrictions, including closures, will be in place during the project. Over the next 3-4 years, work will also be undertaken on Homestead Lane to enhance the pedestrian experience and improve safety. Some of this work will be carried out while the new hall of residence is under construction.

Keep an eye out on the blog for updates about the new hall of residence throughout 2019.

Orbiter bus route change – January 2019
ECan have advised that from Monday 7 January 2019, the Orbiter bus route will change. It will continue from Greers Road, along Waimairi Road to the Bush Inn Centre. It will not include Homestead Lane and Ilam Road. Additional stops will be added on Waimairi and Greers roads.

UC staff and students who wish to catch the Orbiter will need to walk down Homestead Lane or across llam Fields to/from Waimairi Road, or along llam or Clyde Road to/from Riccarton Road.

The Purple line and route 100 will still use llam Road, and these routes connect with Orbiter. Other unaffected bus routes servicing UC are the 120 and 130.

If you have questions about the Orbiter, please direct them to Ecan.
