Works around E8 E9 tomorrow – 21 August

A specialist truck needs to access the area between Electrical Link and the Core tomorrow in order to drive earthing poles into the ground. This requires a portion of the hoardings that keep the public out of the site to be removed temporarily.

Any truck movements outside hoardings will be time to occur while lectures are in session and foot traffic is minimal, and spotters will be engaged on each side of the truck.

Once the earth poles are driven in, the truck will exit via the same route and the hoarding replaced. Please take extra care around this area tomorrow.
