Infrastructure Improvements project update

(24 April 2020)

As part of the £8m Infrastructure Improvements project to enhance movement around the University, work to widen South Road and create several new footpaths around Hollingside Lane to Elvet Hill Road and through Trevelyan College car park, started on Tuesday 31 March.

This phase of the project aims to improve accessibility and safety for University staff, students and the general public. Colas have created a monthly newsletter to keep you up to date with what’s happening, when and where.

Colas is also continually monitoring the evolving situation of COVID-19 and taking precautions to minimise the potential risk of coronavirus on business operations and to protect their workers, taking careful account of latest government and public health advice.
