Campus progress update
University Drive roadwork
Paving takes place on University Drive next week, from August 6 to 8, as we complete this phase of the Campus Horizontal Upgrades. The West Campus Road detour to P3 and the Boathouse parking will be in effect on all three days during working hours. Local traffic only will have access to the Castle and Grant parking, including guests of the executive and persons requiring accessible parking. If you are expecting visitors to the campus, please advise them of the detour and perhaps suggest parking at the top of campus for ease.
Expect noise associated with this work and heavy truck activity. Flaggers will be in place to direct traffic. Please be mindful as they perform their job and give yourself a few extra minutes to get to work.
All staff, students and visitors to campus are reminded to obey the posted speed limits and watch for flag people who may be directing traffic.
Safe driving on campus is essential to everyone’s wellbeing.
Upcoming campus power outage
Building on improvements started in 2017, Royal Roads is moving forward with further upgrades to campus electrical systems. What originally started as a series of four power outages was reduced to two. This is the final of the two campus-wide outages. Working carefully with key stakeholders, Saturday September 7 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. was deemed the best day for this work to occur.
We will be notifying campus users through Crossroads of what to expect closer to the date. Stay tuned!
West Campus deferred maintenance
Activity in the West Campus area continues with work on the LTA primarily focused on the south east corner of the building and surrounding area. During this time there may be some minor traffic disruptions; flaggers will be in place to manage traffic flow as work moves forward. For the safety of all campus users, the speed on West Campus Road has been decreased to 10 km and signs have been posted indicating where construction vehicles will be turning. Please be mindful of flaggers and drive safely.
Parking below P7 adjacent to the Sherman Jen Building is complete. An additional 20 stalls have been added below P7 to compliment the addition of seven stalls in upper P7, for a total of 133 spots available to users, including two accessible spots and two EV charging stations.
On the west side of Sherman Jen, four EV parking spots and two accessible spots are also available to campus users.
