Pedestrians and cyclists are set to benefit from improvements on the Ilam campus between the Geography building and the Central Lecture Theatres/new education building site.
Construction workers are installing a vehicle barrier arm and lockable bollards to create a controlled pedestrian and cyclist zone – making it easier for both groups to move through the area safely. There will still be very limited service vehicle access between the buildings however this will be strictly controlled.
There will also be more bike stands outside the entrance to the Central Lecture Theatres.
The work is expected to finish next week.

For more than 40 years the University of Canterbury Students’ Association building has been a hub of student life, housing a radio station, Canta magazine, bars, a restaurant, and even a cat called Bentley.
But now it’s time to farewell the quake-damaged building. Badly damaged in the 2011 earthquakes, the UCSA building will be demolished in 2016. A new purpose-designed facility will replace it on the same site.
A farewell ceremony will be held on the Avon riverbank, near the building on Thursday 10 December at 10am. The ceremony will be followed by refreshments at Bentley’s bar Events Centre, 90 Ilam Road, where initial design concepts for the new UCSA building will be on display.
University of Canterbury students and staff, both past and present, and the general public are welcome to attend the farewell ceremony.
*Please note internal access to the building is not possible for safety reasons.
