Increased decanting movements in the area between Civil and Natural Resources Engineering and Mechanical Engineering necessitate the closure of the area to all but service, decanting and construction vehicles.
Parking for vehicles will be unavailable from Sunday 18 October 2015, and there will be no public access from Monday 19 October.
Bicycle stands currently located at the east end of Civil/Mechanical will be relocated to the west end parking bays next to the covered bike park.
The north-south walkway remains in operation and emergency exits will be incorporated into the closure. Thank you for your patience and please address any concerns to Project Manager Gareth Jones on 027 548 4968.
A number of works need to be undertaken in Plant Room 12 which currently forms part of the north/south walkway through the engineering precinct.
Because these works necessitate closure of the plant room, they are being undertaken during mid-term break when the majority of students are absent from campus.
The plant room will be closed from Saturday 22 August until Sunday 6 September, and alternative access will be signposted during the period.
All other areas around the plant room, that formed part of the north/south walkway, will remain accessible and the walkway will be back in operation when lectures resume Monday 7 September.
This ongoing programme is delivering some of the most modern teaching, learning and research facilities in the southern hemisphere. At the heart of campus, the exciting new Regional Science and Innovation Centre (RSIC) is being constructed, while to the north, every wing of the Engineering precinct is being either rebuilt or refurbished in the Canterbury Engineering the Future (CETF) development.
There are also projects underway in central Christchurch reconnecting the University to its historic roots and enabling it to play a vital role in the future of the new city with strong community links through the arts and health sectors.
You can keep up with all the ongoing projects at any time here.
